# When We Grasp This Map of Our Universe...

###### By Bruce E. Camber  Initiated November 25, 2019

We start with the very first instant of time. You may not be familiar with Planck Time. It is a major part of our studies within this website. Planck Time was defined in 1899 by Max Planck, the father of quantum physics, a mentor of Einstein, and a Nobel Laureate (1918-1919). He was one of the most substantial thinkers within the entire history of Germany and today there are 84 of the world-class institutes named after him.1

We all should pay attention to his Planck Time. But, you should know that it is an impossibly short duration. Logically, it follows that it is the very first instant of the universe.

We should also pay attention to an equally-impossible short length, now called the Planck Length. It naturally evolves as the Janus-face of Planck Time.

To demonstrate just how very small these infinitesimal measurements are, we did a  simple doubling exercise.

You may be familiar with the wheat and chessboard story. If we were to put Planck Time, Planck Length, and a grain of wheat on the first square of a checkerboard, and you doubled all three, over and over and over again, at the 64th square (that’s eight across and eight down), you would have 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 grains of wheat on the 64th square.  That’s 18 quintillion, 446 quadrillion, and 744 trillion (and quite a few more) grains of wheat. You can easily check the math; it is 264 power. There would be the same number of units of Planck Length and Planck Time.

Even after doubling so many times, Planck Length and Time are still infinitesimally small, smaller than anything our physical devices can measure.

There are many examples on the web, images and videos, to get a sense of the grains. One of my favorites is the 1961 Eames/IBM two-minute production where the stacked the grains end to end. To have 18 quintillion of anything is beyond ginormous. The projected global harvest of wheat for 2019 is 766 million tonnes. There are 36,744 bushels to a ton and about one million grains (kernels) of wheat per bushel. You can do the math but let me assure you, it doesn’t hold a candle to the grains of wheat at 64th notation!

What has happened to Planck Length and Planck Time?

Planck Length is  1.616229(38)×10-35 meters. At the 64th notation it is now 2.981362×10-16 meters. It won’t be until the 67th notation that we can discern if it is a particle or wave. It’ll be up to the 80th doubling before we identify the elements in the Periodic Table, and up to the 101st notation to get to the width of a human hair.

Planck Time, 5.391 16(13)×10-44  seconds,  doesn’t do much better. At the 64th it is too small to measure. The 84th notation is currently the first measured interval of time; the first second is up between the 142nd and  143rd notation. The first year, also known as a light year, is between notations 168 and 169.

The first million years is within notations 189 to 190. The scholars and scientists tell us that it took 150 million years (between Notation 195 and 196) to begin large-scale structure formation and another 560 million years (between Notation 197 and 198) to evolve with a single galaxy. The first billion years finally evolves between 199 and 200.

Our Chart of the Universe. Primarily our chart is about the very earliest universe where science today has the least amount of verifiable information. Here the foundations of our foundations are created. Here our deep logic is formulated. And, key parts of that logic has been validated in a number of key ways. First, there is the speed of light, validated by the simple math alone. Second, here is the most simple explanation of dark energy and dark matter.
