A simple model of our universe
It’s a relational model — hurt one, you hurt us all.
by Bruce E. Camber, a working draft
Abstract. A model of the universe is introduced, based on simple logic, mathematics, and geometries, by parsing the universe into 202 base2 notations.* It starts with Planck Length and Planck Time and goes to today’s size and age of the universe. Those Planck’s units are placeholders, symbolically the very first units of everything, everywhere for all time. By exploring the look and feel of that first moment that defines space and time, it seems the sphere and pi are most logical. Qualities and quantities are manifest. The qualities are infinite and perfect and are represented by continuity, symmetry and harmony. Spherical geometries through cubicclose packing of equal spheres render tetrahedrons and octahedrons and a smooth beginning with no gaps. At a point in time five tetrahedrons share a centerpoint to create a gap and fluctuations emerge. Five octahedrons create the same gap, and together they created many kinds of gaps, and the probable beginnings of quantum physics. This a very different, simple model that needs the courtesy of a critical review. Here, too, is a mostcomprehensive STEM tool that lays out the first second (Notation143), the first millenium (Notation179), and the first billion years (Notation199). Notation202 is 10.9816 billion years in duration; only 2.83 billion years has manifest. This simple model absorbs big bang cosmology.^{†} Most of our sixth grade students readily grasp it, so your comments and questions are always welcomed. Thank you. BEC

Consider a simple concept of time.
What do we believe about time? In a limited survey, a commonsense belief is that time goes on forever. In this model time is finite. Most people have an intuition about a second. Probably it is the mostused, shortest duration of time. There are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour (3600 seconds), 24 hours in a day (86,400 seconds), and 365 days per year (31,536,000 seconds). Factor in Leap Year with its 366 days, we’re up to 31,556,952 seconds. Multiply that by 10 billion years for 31,556,952,000,000,000 seconds. Factor in 13.82 for the current calibration for the billions of years, and that would give us 436,117,076,600,000,000 seconds. That’s from the very start of the universe to this day. For Isaac Newton time goes on forever. Within this simple model, time is finite. The universe is somewhere around 436 quadrillion seconds from the very first moment of time to this day, right now.^{1}
Consider everything, everywhere, for all time.
The story of our first new idea that we uncovered has been told and retold many times. It is the story of the 202 base2 notations from the Planck base units up to Now. We came up with a simple chart for length — https://81018.com/bigboard/ — and lived with it for several years before we added Planck Time, and then a year later we added Planck Charge and Planck Mass. It.was difficult to follow the numbers on each line so in 2016 a horizontallyscrolled chart emerged — https://81018.com/chart/ — and then a website so we all could access it at anytime.
That new chart literally came alive. We had observed how each notation was building on the prior notations. There was a causal efficacy; the geometries, pi, dimensionless constants, cubicclose packing were tying each notation together. At some point it became apparent that all notations had to be active all the time. That was a steep learning curve. We had to ask ourselves, “If that’s true, then what is time?” We started at the Planck base units and assumed Planck Time is the smallest unit and the first unit. That work in 2017 was part of a NASA Space App exploration at their facility in Huntsville.^{2}
We thought we had emerged with our own homegrown STEM tool and began sharing it with other schools. It came with our rough outline of the universe in 202 base2 notations. We had slowly started learning a bit more cosmology and theoretical physics; Frank Wilczek’s books were helping to guide us and there were people like Freeman Dyson who tried to keep us on the straight and narrow.
That the first second wasn’t until Notation143 was quite surprising. We surmised, “This chart is mostly about the first second of the universe after that very first instant when it all began. This model is mostly about the infinitesimal.” One of the many ahha moments was when we asked, “Isn’t that the first second of the universe even as it unfolds today?” It was a puzzling question to ask. We began to see that the universe is almost fully symmetric. It appeared to have a dynamic, causal, working relation back to Notation0 and up to Notation201. I thought, “That puts a lot of pressure on Notation202, especially the current time. All the peculiarities of time symmetries and asymmetries have to be within Notation202.”
Plus, there were so many other questions. Where does gravity come in? How does inflation work here? What about quantum indeterminacy and fluctuations? Is it a quanta of energy or a dynamic relation? What are blackholes and dark energyandmatter?
We knew we had a long way to go before we could truly tackle those wellknown unknowns. At that point, we were trying to figure out the geometries and numbers for those first few notations. We were being pushed to study pi and infinity more closely.
Reconsidering the nature of pi and infinity
The concept of Infinity has been a problem for the world. Selfassured people have come up with special concepts and stories about the very nature of infinity. Told for many generations, those stories have become a key part of a family’s traditions. Not only are these the stories of MomandDad, but from the generations. “This must be the truth. Absolutely so.” That kind of assurance can become arrogance; and when it does, it becomes a problem. It is often difficult to discuss new ideas and concepts if there is limited or no openness. So I asked myself, “Is there a way to respect those stories but have mathematical and scientific concepts that everyone might embrace and about which these should not offend, even if an atheist?”
Our attention increasingly focused on pi.^{[3],[4],[5]}
We concluded that it had been undervalued and underanalyzed among our scholars. It provides a pivot point between the finite and infinite. It is a natural connection. It is a key part of so many basic equations that describe fundamental things and nobody was talking about those keys (essence) as a starting point. The more I learned about Hilbert, Gödel, and infinity, it seemed a simple redefinition was in order. They didn’t have those early notations to challenge them. Let pi provide the simple bifurcation whereby the infinite is qualitative with its continuity/order, symmetry/relations, and harmony/dynamics. And, the finite is the quantitative. It’s measurable. The more time spent with pi, the more challenging and exhilarating it became. The most speculative jump we made was to consider that a natural inflation could be assumed at a rate of one infinitesimal sphere per infinitesimal unit of time and space. Using the Planck numbers that calculated out at 539 tredecillion spheres per second. Using Stoney’s numbers renders 4609 tredecillion spheres per second. The nature of that inflation, explored in an earlier homepage about thrust, is slowly being expanded and pi is leading the way.
Consider these the foundations of our foundations.
The first 64 notations are currently below possibilities for physical measurements. Might these be considered the foundations of the foundations? If primordial spheres manifest at the Planck scale and there are 64 base2 doublings before anything can be measured, isn’t that a new domain, a major amount of space? Just one sphere doubled 64 times would amount to over 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 infinitesimal spheres. It is too small for arrogance but perfect for Langlands, stringandM theory, SUSY, hypothetical particles… and more.
Consider simple complexity.
On the cusp of the finiteinfinite relation. It looks simple, but there is nothing simple about a sphere. Her numbers go on forever, always changing and always the same. Those symmetries appear simple, but are the expression of those endless numbers. Attractors and repellers are seemingly in the fiber of its being. The Fourier Transform and dimensionless constants are quite literally everywhere. One might say that the sphere is a bundle of nerves, infinitesimal but profoundly alive. Here is the continuityorder, symmetryrelations, and harmonydynamics within the perfections of the infinite unfolding within everything quantitative. The perfectly perfect is hypostatic. Simple configurations of five tetrahedrons or five octahedrons come together and become a gateway for fluctuations and creativity. The new is opened and there is so much more to learn and do. Thank you.
We especially welcome your comments and insights. Thanks again.

[*] 202 base2 notations. The first chart was based on length alone. The second chart was to put it all on an 8.5×11″ piece of paper. The third included Planck Time. The fourth chart included Planck Mass and Planck Charge. And, the fifth chart laid it out horizontally.
A key part of this chart is between notations 64and67 where quantum fluctuations become dominant. There comes a place when the composition of measuring devices and the people using them interfere with the measurement. As we go smaller, it becomes increasingly difficult. There will be three zones: 1).Not measurable, 2).Transitional area, and 3).Measurable. The area that is not measurable has had major studies some of which are noted here.
Note: The tetrahedrons and octahedrons used in these models have an actual place along the Notations 0202. The length of the side is 2.5 inches with is between Notations 111and112 (1.65 to 3.3 inches). The models are representational, not literal and become structural within Notation1 and are infinitesimally present within Notation202.

 Aristotle missed using just five tetrahedra, five octahedra, composite of both
Assumed is that this is the very first instance of a length and a moment of time. Multiplying both numbers by two, over and over again, the first measurable units of length is begin around Notation64 and the first measurable unit of time is around Notation72.^{*} At the 143rd doubling, the scale is within one second of the start and the length is the distance light travels in a second. Within 59 more doublings, the scale is out to 13.81 billion years and the size of the universe.That simple outline has a natural progression that approximates the epochs of big bang cosmology,^{†} yet this model parses information so infinitesimally, it was first thought to be a STEM tool. By adding Planck Mass and Planck Charge, the chart was four columns by 202 rows. In 2016 we changed that to a horizontallyscrolled chart of four primary rows and 202 columns so we could follow the data more readily. Since that point steady progress has been made to identify an increasing number of unique facets of this model that seem to readily absorb everything, everywhere for all time. Our sixth grade students readily grasp it. First measurable units of length and time
