# Our Infinitesimal Universe Comes Alive

## Primary Assumptions

1. The Planck base units of length, time, mass and charge describe a real reality.
2. The conceptual door to this infinitesimal universe is where all four Planck base units concresce (grow together, yet individuate) to create a stream of infinitesimal spheres and a framework for applicability. Though physical, length-time are well below thresholds of measurement, the progression of mass-charge units can be studied. These four units are, in some manner of speaking, the Janus-face of each other and of light.
3. Conceptually, sphere stacking becomes cubic-close packing; tetrahedrons and octahedrons emerge. Doublings begin. Our universe emerges. Their numbers eventually begin to define things within our current scientific realities. This is a natural inflation. And, perhaps the word, “dark” does not best describe this matter and energy.
4. Infinity can be understood more deeply. We hypothesize that instead of absolute space-and-time, it is better understood as continuity, symmetry and harmony.

## A Guide To Reflections That Began In December 2011

Our history is rather brief. These ideas and concepts are based on a natural progression of numbers from the Planck Length to the size of the universe. It requires doubling mechanisms and mathematics that goes from the most simple to the most complex.

Also, it seems that only by becoming more precise about our definition and understanding of infinity will we begin to understand the very nature of this universe.

To that end, some of the work done over the years is outlined and linked:

1. All the Numbers: A Highly-Integrated Mathematical Model. These 202 base-2 doublings outline the universe and, by definition, include everything, everywhere, for all time. This is a base-2 exponential expansion from Planck Time. The first second doesn’t emerge until between notations 143 and the first light year between notations 168 and 169. The first million years is between 188 and 189 and the first billion years between 198 and 199. Notation 201 encapsulates 5.49 billion years; and given that the aggregation of all notations up to 201 is also 5.49 billion years, the 202nd notation encapsulates 10.9816 billion years. Given the universe is currently believed to be between 13.78- to-14.1 billion years old, it follows that we are in the earlier part of the 202nd notation (approximately 2.8284 billion years into it).

3. Unified Theory of MathematicsThe simplicity of this model encourages the development of an extensible platform starting with the most simple mathematics and geometry that build to include the two Standard Models, Langlands programsstring theory, dark matter/energy

• Euler. The universe is fundamentally exponential. Euler’s identity is universal.
• In process: Each notation will be analyzed, notation by notation. It will be within this format this unified theory could possibly unfold. Wouldn’t the role of prime numbers be to determine when new mathematical systems can be introduced?

4. Infinity. Given light’s pervasiveness, three aspects of light are taken as qualities that appear to be shared with the infinite. These are:

• ContinuityOrder / numbers, first within the dimensionless constants, never-ending, never repeating, and then with the progression of spheres.
• Symmetry. Relations / Geometries, first with the symmetry of the spheres, then the symmetry within the tetrahedrons and octahedrons that are generated.
• Harmony. Dynamics / Space-time where two symmetries actively interact as a moment of space-time; it is a qualitative moment we experience as harmony.

5. The qualitative opens the way to value and ethics. Perhaps the most controversial conclusion of all, it seems to follow from the abstractions within harmony.

## Key Questions for Scholars

1. What shall we do with this simple construction? Why does it work? Why doesn’t it work?
2. Our chart is obviously mostly a description of the very early universe.
The really large-structure formation doesn’t begin until the 195th to the 197th notations!
The 202nd notation encapsulates over 10.9 billion years!
Within a notation there appears to be time asymmetry, but once integrated with the first 201 notations, it becomes part of “the Now” and time symmetries are evident.

We do not know the answers so we reach out to scholars who might. For this homepage, among many others, we have asked (in order of appearance above) Stephon Alexander of Brown, Laura Mersini-Houghton of UNC-Chapel Hill, Claus Kiefer of Cologne, Renate Loll of Radboud University (Nijmegen), Steve Adler of the Institute for Advanced Studies, Alexander Vilenkin of Tufts, and Sophie Gibb of Durham (click on their name or pictures above). If any encourage us to share their comments, we will. Thank you. – BEC
