A morning reflection on the Genesis story

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

As many of you already know, there is a total of 202 notations using the power of 2 (doublings), the concept of mathematical continuity, and simple nested geometries to interconnect the entire universe throughout all time. The result is a most simple chart. It would appear that there is a deep infrastructure that is created and sustained between notations 1 and 144. The universe is 1.2023 seconds old at Notation 144. Yes, that notation defines the first second of creation.

And yes, over two-thirds of this chart is 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 the first day of creation is completed. If we do not buy Newton’s absolutes of space and time, these notations do not dissolve into the past. Each is always doing its work that each is seemingly destined to do.

One day: 86,400 seconds. One day is between the 160th and 161st notation.
One month: An average of about 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 aeon, is approximately 31,556,952,000,000,000 seconds; it is between the 199th and 200th notations.

The universe today has zoomed by 436.117 quintillion seconds old. That calculation looks like this: 31.5 quintillion seconds in a billion years, multiplied by 13.82 is 436.117 quintillion seconds. For more…  More recently

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

This appears to be a possible infrastructure of our little universe.

How this notational time applies to the very old 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. That would put us 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 Notations 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 Notations 200-to-201. Another billions-of-year group, this notation is also but a day in this model of the universe.

6. The sixth day bring us into human history which is within the 202nd notation. According to the words, we are blessed and charged. Though another multi-billion, solar-year notation, this “day” is only a small part of the Notation-202.

7. The seventh day brings us to the current day all within Notation-202. It is for resting, perhaps waiting for the rest of of us to wake up.

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, Abner Shimony,  and so many others. Yet, it was only in 2011, in that high school geometry class that we discovered a little universe inside 202 base-2 notations comprised of the most simple geometric objects. The first object is called a tetrahedron. Inside of it we discovered, by dividing the edges by two and connecting the new vertices, a tetrahedron in each of the four corners and an octahedron in the middle. Doing the same with that octahedron, we found an octahedron in each of six corners and a tetrahedron in each of the eight faces.

We continued 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 we continued going within on paper. In just 67 more simple mathematical steps, we were at long last down to the smallest possible size of a length as determined by one of our great scientists, Max Planck. He first started developing these base units in 1899 and first published his results in 1906.

There are a total of 112 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 about 90 steps, we had mathematically defined the rest of our little universe.

This process, just multiplying by 2, is so simple,  we are surprised that it 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 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 202 steps or notations.

Yes, from the beginning of creation to this day there are just over 202 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, if you were to divide the Planck Length multiple by the Planck Time multiple, 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: 86,400 seconds. Out of the 202 notations, one day is between the 160th and 161st notations.
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 an average of 31,556,952,000,000,000 seconds; it is between the 199th and 200th notations.

This model is vastly different from any model that has ever been proposed and it needs much more reflection. So we extend our thanks for the power and presence of your thoughts as this work moves forward.

Thank you.
