“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”  John 1:1-5 These words took on new meaning back within the first week of May 2016  — it is a very simple fact that every notation for the entire universe, everything, everywhere, throughout all time, is embedded within light. The explanation is rather straightforward and, although there may be a few new concepts here, it is actually all very simple. There are three charts, all based on multiplication by 2, that will help to explain. This first chart (opens in new tab or window), first printed up in December 2011, begins at the Planck Length (the smallest possible length) and goes out to an approximation  of the size of the universe which is called, the Observable Universe. The February 2015 chart begins at the Planck Time and it uses 13.8 billion years as the Age of the Universe, the endpoint of this simple mathematical progression.  Within this chart all five of the Planck base units are tracked to their current expressions.  Again,  there are just over 201 base-2 exponential notations from that first moment of creation to this day. These two charts are vertically-scrolled. The third chart, developed in April 2016, is  horizontally-scrolled.  It is a very different experience to follow the progressions of the top rows where the Planck Time and Planck Length scale up to the current time (Age of the Universe) and to the Observable Universe. Here is the key: At any notation along the scale, one can take the number from Planck Length scale and divide it by the corresponding number from the Planck Time scale and result will approximate the speed of light. Every notation reflects the speed of light.  Yes, let there be light. In every notation let the light shine. And, may it shine in all the dark places on this earth and beyond. -Amen
