Cold-Start versus Infinitely-Hot Start
A Most-Simple Alternative to Lemaître-Hawking-Guth Cosmology

by Bruce E. Camber

ABSTRACT

…..

If a cold-start to the universe is assumed, and a basic structure is defined by the Planck base units, the forms and functions of science can be re-evaluated. (1).The.progenitor of the circle and sphere, pi (π), has a pivotal role as one of our earliest working equations. It is a.numerically-rich, universally-engaged, geometric, dimensionless constant; it is never-ending, never-repeating, invariant, transcendental and irrational. These qualities become among the most fundamental processes that define our universe. (2).Pi.comes out of the seminal concepts of continuity, symmetry and harmony, a simple perfection. (3).The.sphere comes alive. The “first manifestation of thingness” is the very first instance of space-and-time and mass-and-charge. These four faces of light set a rate of expansion. (4).Building on such concepts, Kepler and others give us sphere stacking and cubic-close packing of equal spheres. (5).Joseph.Fourier’s work on basic transformations (circa 1822) expands our understanding of pi and periodicity. (6) Our initial value formulation uses the 1899 logic of Max Planck’s natural base units of length, time, mass and charge; these four numbers, and all the dimensionless constants used to define them are fundamental. (7).To.create.order out of the large numbers of spheres within the infinitesimal, we apply Euler’s base-2 notation. From PlanckTime to this day, there are just 202 notations. (8).The.first.64 notations are below the thresholds of direct measurements. Within this model, these first 64 of the 202 are most foundational (all superconductingly cold). (9).This.is a new laboratory for explorations. (10).Here let us engage causal set theory, causal dynamical triangulation, string theory, Langlands programs and so many other logically constructed environments that are beyond reach of all current measuring devices. All are within the first 64 notations of this mathematical laboratory. -BEC

1. INTRODUCTION

The infinitely-hot start of the big bang theory has key unanswered questions. In his 1927 reflections, Georges Lemaître advocated a cold-start, yet, by 1931 he had changed his mind and is now known for a rather-hot start. Max Planck’s 1899 calculation for Planck Temperature may have had something to do with that change, yet any explanation for this fundamental shift by Lemaître is yet to be discovered. [1] If Lemaître’s cold start had been adopted, I believe the fundamentality of pi would have been entertained in that process. The basic structure of the most-fundamental things tends to be spherical where the role of pi is pivotal. Herein, the hope of this article is to encourage a deeper analysis of the role of pi in the shaping of the first instant and the earliest universe.

2. CONTINUITY, SYMMETRY & HARMONY

Scale invariant, pi renders the qualities of continuity, symmetry, and harmony. First, there is the continuity of the never-ending and never-repeating numbers; there is also the continuity of all other dimensionless constants involved. Symmetry analysis begins within one of the five fundamental symmetry classes — dihedral, cyclic, tetrahedral, octahedral, and icosahedral. Each is a setting within which the dimensionless constants shape space-time, and mass-charge. Also, we assume Leibniz law of continuity and his transcendental law of homogeneity. The finite-infinite relation is a constant dynamic.

Harmonies of motion, symmetries extended through space-time, are described by Fourier transforms. It is a new order and value for all numbers; everything-everywhere-for-all-time has deep-seated, dimensionless, dynamic relations. Subjects and objects are derivative and the relations are primarily real. The first dynamic moment is the face of continuity-symmetry-harmony and it captures the very nature of space-time, and mass-charge.

Continuity, symmetry and harmony are conceptual words with exacting meanings within the infinitesimal scale. These words also are generalized observations that are applicable within the largest-possible scale. Yes, these words have applications from the most finite to the infinite and in so doing, create a de facto value structure for things.[2]

3. OUR UNIVERSE COMES ALIVE – THE PLANCK SPHERE*

Throughout our history, spheres have been the shape of fundamental forms. For several years I argued with mathematician, Phil Davis, on the faculty of Brown University. Phil held up the sphere; I held up the tetrahedron. Before he died in 2018, I capitulated. I had assumed that Max Planck’s four base units uniquely defined the very first instant and every instance thereafter and asked, “What would it look like?” Planck’s 1899 basic calculations render actual numbers, quantities that become the qualities of some manifestation. Herein I assume a primordial sphere.

We had learned how the tetrahedron is derivative of the sphere, and that spheres stack and discover each other. A simple graphic helped us to grasp that phenomenon (below).

PlanckTime has been said to be the time it takes light to travel one PlanckLength. Here it is assumed to be one PlanckSphere* per PlanckSecond (a unit of PlanckTime). Here the very nature of light renders Planck’s calculation of a natural unit of time which is 5.39116×10−44 seconds. A simple calculation gives us a rate of expansion of 539.116 tredecillion planckspheres per second.** Using base-2 to group those spheres, we find just 202 notations from PlanckTime to the current time. The more we engaged these numbers, the more every notation comes alive, fully interdependent with the others. The first 64 notations as such are relatively unknown and have hardly been explored. Those 64 notations are below the reaches of our measuring devices and most methodologies. For perspective, by Notation-136 the energy densities and temperatures are high enough for the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) processes to begin. The first second of the universe emerges between Notations-143-and-144. Each notation is being defined by a Planck-base unit multiple, by prior notations, and then by each subsequent notation.

Thinking about Lemaître’s primeval atom, Wheeler’s geon, and Pati-and-Salam’s preon, with the introduction of the first 64 notations, these can no longer be considered “point interactions” with no known extension. By the 64th notation, concepts like the preon and geon will have deep, rich textures and many extensions.

To help make the shift from the infinitely-hot Big Bang theory to this Cold-Start UniverseView, consider this comparison, a simple chart. If so defined and understood, the PlanckSphere becomes the most essential, foundational unit that begins to quantize our universe. It prov\des immediate insights into the raison d’être and the very nature of homogeneity and isotropy, which taken as a whole is the aether, and measured as an effect, is dark matter and dark energy. [3]

* PlanckSphere: Not formally recognized, there are many references to word on the web (Also, see articles with ArXiv).
** If this model is anywhere close to correct, this expansion of our universe is, for most people, a very different image, second-by-second. Consider the simple calculations:
• 539,116,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 planckspheres/second

• 436,117,076,900,000,000 seconds (approximately 13.82 billion years)
.. Read: 436 quadrillion, 117 trillion, 76 billion, 900 million seconds or 436117076900000000

• Add the eight zeros from seconds and 37 zeroes from the planckspheres per second
• Estimated total number of planckspheres in the universe: 2.35117694×1060 planckspheres

4. SPHERE STACKING & CUBIC-CLOSE PACKING OF EQUAL SPHERES

To review, although orders-of-magnitude smaller than an atom or any known particle such as the neutrino, that very-first infinitesimal sphere, is always “never-ending, never-repeating, always the same and forever changing.” Along with the inherent qualities of all other dimensionless constants, the very nature of continuity is redefined. It is a new order and value for all numbers; everything-everywhere-for-all-time has many dynamic relations.

Here, subjects-and-objects are derivative and the relations become primarily real.

Sphere to tetrahedron-octahedron couplet

That first dynamic moment is the face of continuity; it captures the very nature of time, space, mass and charge, and the first thing that happens is the spheres necessarily stack and begin creating dynamic relations. The earliest stacking is best described by cubic-close packing of equal spheres. Structure builds on structure.

Symmetry brings balance and stability and knowingness to values of continuity. [4]

5. THE FOURIER TRANSFORMS OPEN THE DYNAMICS OF HARMONY

Harmony opens the richest dynamics of the universe and of life.

Another quality of the sphere dynamics is a range of harmonies, Fourier pairs, symmetries in motion, each creating a space-time moment defined by the Planck base units, dimensionless constants, and a rich variegation of numbers. There are many faces and forms of the Fourier Transform. To associate these with the infinitesimal universe will empower many new insights about the nature of things and the very nature of life. More to come

The three primary facets of pi and of life — continuity, symmetry, and harmony — are the definition of the essential structure of the sphere, which ultimately give rise to the very structures of our little universe, the deepest nature of both the finite and the infinite. I believe these three qualities define a perfection and a perfected state within space-time. Within the earliest notations there is a thrust of perfection. There is no room or time for imperfections. [5]

6. THE FOUR PLANCK BASE UNITS AND PI

That first instant, defined by Planck’s four base units, are all so small, the sphere is necessarily cold. From where would heat be generated? As each notation incorporates more units of Planck Charge – Planck Mass, there is a progression of forms, structures, substances, qualities, and systems. The initial guess is that systems begin to emerge around Notation-50 and one of the systems is the Mind. Here may be the first manifestation of what might be called, ontic fluctuations, well prior to physical measurements, yet mental events that are not perfect, but discontinuous, asymmetrical, and not harmonious. What will be known as quantum fluctuations become measurable within Notation-64 to Notation-67. Of course, quantum fluctuations are not measurable until the advent of measuring devices within Notation-202. Thus, there is a domain of perfection from Notation-1 to the notations when and where ontic fluctuations begin. And, some aspects of that perfection — continuity, symmetry, and harmony — are extended throughout the 202 base-2 notations that encapsulate everything, everywhere for all time.

This model is primarily about the infinitesimal universe. From the first instance with Notation-1 to Notation-144 includes the first second. The first year is within Notation-169, the first 1000 years is within Notation-179, the first million years is in Notation-189, and the first billion years is in Notation-199.

Today, Notation-1 to Notation-201 are fully symmetrical. Notation-202 contains the current time and will do so for another 7.9 billion years. Notation-202 is 10.89 billion years in duration. The sum total of all durations up to Notation-202 is also approximately 10.89 billion years. A simple calculation tells us that only a total of about 2.9 billion years of Notation-202 has been filed. There is what appears to be a flow of time experienced as time’s arrow. Within this model there is only one time, the Now. Our hypothesis is that the uniqueness of any moment-and-day is recompiled within the larger universe every time there is sleep. Of course, such a statement will be more deeply analyzed.[6]

7. BASE-2 NOTATION AND EULER’S EXPONENTIATION

To organize all this simple data — pi, spheres, continuity-symmetry-harmony, sphere stacking, cubic-close packing, the Fourier Transform, and an expansion rate of 539.116 tredecillion planckspheres per second — required a simple tool. Such a tool, introduced by Leonhard Euler in the 1700’s, is base-2 exponentiation. Those 539.116 tredecillion plancksphere (per seconds) could fill a circle slightly larger than the current low-earth, orbital paths, yet have a density of a neutron star that is orders of magnitude greater than the mass of the sun. If you can imagine that is happening every second, you have an image of a possible expansion of this universe.

The densities between Notation-2 and Notation 144 are unlike anything we can intuit. It would seem that such densities necessitate that the most simple symmetries emerge first. Nothing is by chance alone. No college course today imagines how symmetry groups flow within such densities and how cubic-close packing (ccp) occurs. We ask, “Do lines, tetrahedrons and octahedrons flow naturally within such density?” We are in search of scholars within the neutron-star disciplines who can help with these issues. [7]

8. THRESHOLDS OF MEASUREMENT

Although not formally named by NIST, CODATA, BIPM, ISO or any other international governing body for scientific naming and standards, some refer* to that very first spherical unit as a PlanckSphere (10−44). There are six infinitesimal ranges that are yet to be named: 10−27, 10−30, 10−33, 10−36, 10−39 and  10−42. The 10−42 group includes 10−44 where that unit of time is currently informally referred as the PlanckSecond.  Reference: https://81018.com/codata/

Here Notation-1 through to Notation-64 (9.945379×10-25seconds) have no common name for length or time by which each is known. A naming convention has not been convened since 1991.** That’s a statement. This part of the scientific identity de facto has been deemed to be unimportant, yet these may be the numbers necessary for deeper considerations of the proper definitions of dark matter and dark energy. Although dark matter and dark energy can be indirectly measured and we’ve known of their existence of over 100 years, our lack of names hinders discussion. We have reservoirs of infinitesimal data to couple with the growing reservoirs from large-scale CMB data. Names for these domains would help. So, as a result, we have become advocates that these high commissions name these six sets of numbers. [8]

* As of February 20, 2021, there are 1,420 online references to the “PlanckSphere.” Quotes are used to limit the search.

9. OUR “NEW” LABORATORY OPENED IN 2016

This lab will be more than an advocate for the clear recognition of this infinitesimal universe; it will be constantly refining our views of it. For example, we will continue to refine the work we did for the NASA SpaceApp innovation program to define a clock for the universe. We will continue to refine the horizontally-scrolled Chart of the Universes and our UniverseTable. But most importantly, we will continue to develop our understanding of the first 64 notations to bring dark energy and dark matter into the light. We will continue our understanding of how it all defines a new aether and renders a structure of homogeneity and isotropy. Yes, continuity-symmetry-harmony are three facets of any given moment and these lay the foundations for the expansion of the universe, the very nature of value, and the beginnings of economic theory. Some of our most important work will be interpreting this model as a value structure that inculcates aesthetics, ethics, morals, purpose and values.

Continuity is the beginning of value. Think of gold and silver coins and things made of these precious metals. Think of fine homes, fine cars, fine clothes, and fine food. The first quality and value of each is that these things are the instantiation of continuity. Each establishes standards for the best of what is. It is not unpredictable. It transcends time (as it creates time).

Now think of the people involved with the making, selling, and maintaining of all these fine things. Here are symmetries of many relations over time. All circles and spheres, here are affirmations, texturing, and imparting continuity. Every relation establishes, sustains and increases the inherent values. Symmetry brings balance and stability and knowingness to value.

Now think about how those fine things bring joy, pleasure, and moments of perfection. As all the finer things are used or consumed, life is enlivened and enriched. There is a sense of a deep harmony and joy. The values created are experienced and affirmed, and life is good. These are valuations that we yearn and strive for; and though seemingly illusive, they are everywhere, and always just a bit deeper within. Harmony opens the richest dynamics of life. [9]

10. STRINGs, LanGLands, causal set theory, causal dynamical triangulation

Empowered by concepts at the edges of our knowledge, here our students will engage causal dynamical triangulation, causal set theory, scalar field theory, loop quantum gravity, string theory, Langlands programs… the cutting edge of research of the very nature of our universe. We’ll also begin to grasp the very nature of value. Returning to these roots to go over it just one more time, we want to see what we have missed in order to give us a more-complete picture of the structure of our emergent universe. Our three most general concepts — continuity-symmetry-harmony — render space-time and mass-charge as the Janus face of each other. Here, too, we believe that we’ll begin to grasp how it is that electromagnetism and gravity have also been yoked. [10]

Our list of naive claims continues to grow and so this commentary will also grow.

SUMMARY

Does pi have a role within emergence, especially the first moments and seconds of the universe?

Max Planck’s base units were ostensibly ignored for over 100 years. Today, we recognize their reality but those numbers radically change with just these four working assumptions:

  1. The four Planck base units manifest as a basic building block, an infinitesimal sphere many orders of magnitude smaller than a neutrino. It is the first moment of spacetime.
  2. This sphere is also defined by pi and other dimensionless constant, then further defined by cubic-close packing of equal spheres and the Fourier Transform.
  3. Planck Time, 5.391 16(13)×10-44 seconds, defines a rate of expansion, one PlanckSphere per PlanckSecond renders 539.116 tredecillion units per second.
  4. Apply base-2 to that expansion; and, all those spheres and the universe are encapsulated within 202 notations. The first 64 are below the reaches of our measuring devices. Notation-1, the first moment in time, is that first sphere. The current time is within Notation-202. Those notations encapsulate everything, everywhere, for all time and our chart of those numbers provide a map to understand our universe.

We can begin to learn about a new aether, dark energy and dark matter, and the basis of homogeneity and isotropy which ultimately will help mitigate our inherent proclivity toward solipsism.

CONCLUSION

The three primary facets of pi and of life — continuity, symmetry, and harmony — are the definition of the essential structure of the sphere, which ultimately give rise to the very structures of our little universe. It all starts superconductingly cold. Yes, and, these facets manifest the deepest nature of the finite and the infinite.

Until there is formal recognition of the word by some official international agency for naming conventions, we will attempt to update this footnote as often as possible. The concept of a most basic unit of the universe defined by something like Planck’s base units is essential. Planck’s base units have gained a level-and-status within the academic and scientific communities, many related words have followed. To date, there are no agreements about how these four Planck base units might manifest. Of the 1420 postings using the word, Planck Sphere, there is a wide range of implied definitions. We’ll continue our studies of the usage and update this footnote appropriately.

[7] Base-2 exponentiation and Euler: This project got its start unwittingly doing a base-2 progression from a classroom tetrahedron inside the smaller octahedron within it, then into 112 successive steps back inside smaller and smaller octahedrons and tetrahedrons. We learned base-2 through geometry. It is how we learned about Euler and exponentiation. It was just a few months after that fateful day in class, December 19, 2011, when we began that I posted this article in Wikipedia. I was sure that our chart was already a STEM tool on the web somewhere, developed by different people, and that we only needed to find each other and pull our concepts together. It took four years to feel assured that we were outliers who had a very idiosyncratic view of cosmology.

[8] The Thresholds of Measurement: Since 2011 two measurement records for a unit of time have been broken by the Max-Planck-Institut für Quantenoptik in Garching, Germany. Prof. Dr. Ferenc Krausz group was able to measure an attosecond (10-18 seconds), then a femtosecond (10−15) and most recently a zeptosecond (10−21). It is still a long way to go to the Plancksecond 10−44). A hopeful glimmer on the horizon is the work of three doctoral candidates, Andrea Di Biagio (La Sapienza), Marios Christodoulou (Oxford), Pierre Martin-Dussaud (Aix-Marseille Univ, Université de Toulon) who are trying to formulate an experimental environment to determine time sequences as short as the shortest, the Planck second. They will also determine if time is ultimately discrete and digital.

Endnotes

[1] Orders of Magnitude Smaller Than Any Known Particle. In the prior posting, the size of things using base-2 notation from the Planck base units was explored. Planck Length and Planck Time are so infinitesimal spheres, the first 64 notations are difficult to conceive. Also beyond imagination are the 539.116 tredecillion planckspheres by the first second between Notation 143 and Notation 144. The overall picture is reviewed in that prior posting, https://81018.com/challenge/#1f Notwithstanding, one can see that our infinitesimal sphere within Notation-1 is orders of magnitude smaller than a neutrino (and trillions upon trillions of neutrinos pass through us every day).

Cubic-close packing of equal spheres: Though lifted up within this website first (2016), this image naturally builds on the next five dynamic images. Sine-Cosine-Waves: We’ll all learn about the wave’s fundamental relationship to the circle. Focus on Sine: We’re all going to learn a little trigonometry and calculus, too.An all-natural polarization: An open metaphor and analogical construction. Lagrange points: All Lagrangians come home

[z] Types of symmetries. Every symmetry is a key. We are just scratching the surface. Some geometers have been at it for decades; they know remarkable things about pi and symmetry. Yet when I ask them about the interiority of the octahedron and they can not tell me about those four hexagonal plates within, I know too much that is fundamental has already been missed. We all need to be celebrating every honey bee in the world. Somehow they are in harmony with those hexagonal plates and everything that comes out of them has a deep hexagonality. We all need to know and experience every natural symmetry.

6:46 PM · Feb 21, 2021 @RepKinzinger We all need a different vision of who we are and why. All our little worldviews tend to trample anything in the way. Globalism is too small. We need an integrated view of the universe so we can get grounded in the basics: http://81018.com is my simple start.

4:01 PM March 1, 2021 An email sent to old contacts with whom I haven’t heard for awhile:
Quick questions. Have you ever thought:
1. Here we are 13.79 billion years of history and we barely know much about it, or think about it in order to context and understand our own time. Are we limited ourselves?
2. Here we are in a splendid universe but we rarely think about it, we rarely think beyond our home’s bounds (or the country’s bounds during the evening news)! Do we need to expand?
3. What if we had an integrated view of the universe, everything, everywhere for all time that entirely encapsulates it all within 202 base-2 notations? Don’t you think that would give us a new perspective and it just might help us break free of our naturally solipsistic views of things? Don’t you think a highly integrated view of the universe could open questions we usually do not entertain? Might it give new insights to all the old, open questions about life (and physics and cosmology)? Might it help us get beyond worldviews with inherently limited points of view? Interesting? Thanks.
Warmly,
