You will see everything, everywhere, throughout all time, in just 201 steps. It is all so very simple, we’ve asked, “How could something this simple be ignored for so long?”
We thought there must be something wrong with our simple logic. Just by dividing an object in half, over and over and over again, we found the smallest possible unit of measurement of a length (the Planck Length) in just over 106 steps.
We multiplied this object by 2. Just 95 times and we were out to the largest measurement of a length (the Observable Universe). That’s a total of just over 201 steps from the smallest to the largest possible measurements in the universe.
We started this exploration back in December 2011. When we couldn’t find it on the web, I began sending out emails to my smartest friends, “What’s wrong with this picture?”
We quickly learned of Kees Boeke’s 1957 work in a Dutch high school where they toured the Universe in just 40 quick jumps. They had no geometry. They didn’t use those smallest and largest measurements as their container and they were multiplying by 10, just adding zeroes.
We started with a geometry. We were multiplying and dividing by 2. Now that’s how cells divide. Our process is more natural, more lifelike, and most importantly, we get to see a much more granular universe.
Plus, those largest and smallest measurements are some of the most important numbers in science today. They are called the Planck Base Units; they were formulated in 1899 by Max Planck, a Nobel laureate in 1918, one of Einstein’s mentors, and the father of quantum theory.
Today, we have two primary charts. This original from 2011 is based on the Planck Length. It has been updated many times. And a comparative chart with all five Planck Base Units.
Our project is to collect all our thoughts and writings from the past four years, consolidate and refine them for prime time for all the university scholars to come in to either take it apart or to attempt to incorporate it into the fabric of academic research today.
At the very least, the great physicist, Freeman Dyson, agreed with me that it would make an excellent STEM tool for our high school students to learn Science- Technology-Engineering-Mathematics.
If it challenges the Big Bang theory, so be it. Let’s be intellectually honest and explore the most simple logic and most simple model of our universe. Called, The Big Board-little universe Project, we welcome you to join us.
