**Genesis 1:1** *In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…*

As many of you already know, there are a total of 202 notations using base-2 exponentiation (mathematical continuity) and simple nested geometries to most-simply interconnect the entire universe. It would appear that there is a deep infrastructure that is created and sustained between notations 1 and 144 (1.2023 seconds) *That notation defines the first second of creation*. Over two-thirds of the chart are devoted to the first second of creation.

One might conclude that there is something exquisitely important happening within the very small, seemingly instantaneous, 144-steps of creation. *It will take another 17 notations before we get through just the first day of creation which is the first day of creation for all time*. It doesn’t go away. It is always there. It is still doing the work it was created to do.

One day: 86,400 seconds. Out of the 200+ notations, one day is between the 160th and 161st notations.

One week: 604,800 seconds. One week is within the 163rd notation.

One month: An average of 2,629,746 seconds, it is within the 165th notation. 18,144,000

One year: An average of 31,556,952 seconds, it is between the 168th and 169th notations.

One millennium: 1000 years, an average of 31,556,952,000 seconds, is between the 178th and 179th notations.

One million years: An average of 31,556,952,000,000 seconds, is between the 188th and 189th notations.

The first billion years, an eon, is approximately 31,556,952,000,000,000 seconds; it is between the 199th and 200th notations.

The universe today is approximately 435.48 quintillion seconds old. (Calculation: 31.5 quintillion seconds in a billion years, multiplied by 13.8 is 435.48 quintillion seconds.)

Each notation harbors its unique, constant-and-abiding unfolding.

This is our little universe.

How this notational time applies to the Genesis story is anybody’s guess today. So here are seven guesses:

**1. The first day separates light from darkness**. Though in this model, light is an inherent part of the definition of each notation (see line 10), there is what cosmologists propose as a photon epoch from 10 seconds out to about 380,000 years. Just because one solar day falls within that period, I would suggest a biblical day within Genesis 1 could possibly equal a solar day on earth. That would be perfectly symbolic. And, it would bring us up in between Notations 160 to 161.`

2. **The second day creates the firmament, the heavens, and the division of waters**. Let us get the counsel of great biblical scholars, yet it seems, by reading ahead to day 3, that we need to be up to 150 million solar years between Notations 197 and 198.

3. **The third day opens galactic formations**. The earth is pegged to be around 4.543 billion years old and that brings us into the 198th notation. Though a multi-billion year notation, it is as if a day.

4. **The fourth day must therefore be notation 199-to-200**. Now the notations are in billions-of-years groups. Though a multi-billion (measured by solar-years) notation, the perception of it is as if just one day.

5. **The fifth day defaults to notation 200-to-201**. Another billions-of-year group, this notation is also but a day in God’s plan.

6. **The sixth day bring us into human history which is within the 202 notation**. We are blessed and charged. Though another multi-billion, solar-year notation, this “day” is only part of the 202 notation.

7. **The seventh day brings us to the current day all within Notation 202**.

**The brief history behind uncovering these numbers…**

First, in 2011 a few high school geometry classes explored a pervasive geometry and mathematics that encloses all things everywhere throughout all time.

I had been actively studying the foundations of science and religion throughout the years going back into the heydays of the ’70s with professors like David Bohm, Olivier Costa de Beauregard, Jean-Pierre Vigier, John Bell, Victor Weisskopf and others. Yet, it was only in 2011, in that high school geometry class that we discovered the universe inside simple geometric objects. The first, called the tetrahedron, can be discovered by dividing the edges by two and connecting the new vertices. We found a tetrahedron in each of the four corners and an octahedron in the middle. Do the same to the octahedron; you’ll find an octahedron in each of six corners and a tetrahedron in each of the eight faces.

Keep going deeper and deeper within each structure.

Strange thing is that in about 44 steps, you’ll run out of space. Everybody always will. You will find yourself at the edge of the smallest particles within an atom and nothing truly goes inside those spaces. But, we knew we had a long way to go to get to the smallest possible space (called the Planck Length), so on paper we continued to go within. In just 67 more theoretical steps, we were at long last down to the smallest possible size, mathematically determined by one of our great scientists, Max Planck, who first started working to develop these base units in 1899 and first published his results in 1906.

There are a total of 111 notations going within. It didn’t take too much imagination to take our original object and multiply it by two, over and over again. The results were even more surprising.

Within just seven steps that little tetrahedron is bigger than the tallest person and it has a multitude of parts. Within 30 more steps we are out well beyond the International Space Station and the complexity is overwhelming. There are no tricks, no special formulas. It is all just simple math. Each time we just double the length. Within 40 more steps we are out on the edges of the Solar System. And, within less than just 24 more steps, we are at the edges of the universe. In 90+ steps, we have mathematically defined the rest of our little universe.

That process is called base-2 exponential notation and we were most surprised that something so simple had never been discussed within our schools. Of course, Kees Boeke’s 1957 work in Holland used base-10 and it became popular. Yet, his model was never used for scientific formulations. So now we are asking our the best living scholars, “What do we do with our simple mathematical model?” It defines our universe with numbers and geometries within a dynamic tension, all in just over 201 steps or notations.

Yes, from the beginning of creation to this day there are just over 201 doublings. It is just too simple.

We began by calling this project, “The Big Board – little universe project.” It was for high school kids and one class of very special 6th graders. Later, as we added more Planck base units to the chart, we began to refer to the model as the “Quiet Expansion.” It seemed that this simple model could become a better model of our universe than the theory given within big bang cosmology. Every step (also called a notation, group, container…) becomes part of the actual definition of a real and never-ending, highly-integrated universe.

It is all based on the Planck base units and at each step, divide the Planck Length multiple by the Planck Time multiple and you’ll approximate the speed of light. Yes, each notation is filled with an essence of light. So, let there be light. Indeed!

Let us all again look at and review each of those seven steps. The first day of creation takes us up to the 160th of those 201+ notations:

One day: At 86,400 seconds, it is between the 160th and 161st notations.

One week: At 604,8000 seconds, it is between 162-165, but within the 163rd notation.

One month: An average of 2,629,746 seconds, it is within the 165th notation.

One year: An average of 31,556,952 seconds, it is between the 168th and 169th notations.

One millennium: 1000 years, an average of 31,556,952,000 seconds, is between the 178th and 179th notations.

One million years: An average of 31,556,952,000,000 seconds, is between the 188th and 189th notations.

The first billion years, an eon is an average of 31,556,952,000,000,000 seconds; it is between the 199th and 200th notations. And, for those of you who use theological language, within this current doubling, the Creator-Sustainer has taken a well-deserved “day of rest.”

This model is vastly different from any model that has ever been proposed and it needs prayers and reflection. The power and presence of your prayers as this work moves forward is requested.
