# Redefining light

Background: While working to outline the universe within just 202 successive doublings from the Planck base units to the Age of our Universe, a very simple part of Max Planck’s formulas for Planck Time jumped off the page. The formula: Planck Length divided by Planck Time equals light (c). The actual result is 299,792,437.991 meters per second. The generally-accepted experimental value is 299,792,458 meters per second in a vacuum.If we take Planck Time, 5.391 16(13)×10-44 seconds,  and double it, and double each result 143 times, the value is .60116 seconds.  The 144th doubling is, of course, 1.2023 seconds. Between the two, the universe is just one second old. It is hard to conceive, but from the 143rd notation to the 202nd notation the universe expands to its current size and 13.8± billion years.In 2011 we began batting around some of these figures to explore Planck’s Length. Finally, in 2014 we added Planck Time and in 2015, the Planck Charge and Planck Mass. A horizontally-scrolled chart with simple calculations for all the Planck base units emerged in 2016. Our first analysis of the formula (above) — December 22, 2016 — raised questions. And then, to attempt to go further, in September 2018, a letter about those questions was sent to several scholars.

IntroductionMost of us do not quibble with the current scientific understanding of light.
And, most of us seem quite comfortable at least to know what we know about visible light. Yet, when pushed just a little, we readily admit our knowledge is weak and incomplete. When we lack basic information, and sometimes even harbor the wrong information, our insights and wisdom remain shallow, our curiosity gets dulled, and our ability to integrate concepts grows weaker. Nobody told us, “This is important. You need to know this.” Within that context and perspective, this article is taking shape. Can we see light like a scientist then go deeper-wider-and-higher?We need to know the entire electromagnetic spectrum to able to understand what our scientists are doing and what their progress has been. For example, we are doing extraordinary things with lasers, yet most of us haven’t a clue how one works and where it is on this spectrum on the right. And isn’t it peculiar, with all our sophistication, and knowledge, we always seem to have more problems than solutions. And then, when we do find a solution to a problem,  even more problems seem to be created. Something is wrong. Throughout the world, we are all tensed up within our unknowing. And then, within this little site, off in a little corner of the web, we have a formula for light developed by Max Planck in 1899 and the scientific community isn’t truly aware of that formula or its basic-basic relation with light. It appears from here that there is much more to learn about light and its deeper relation to the Planck base units. To wrestle with the this particular issue, I have begun looking for the very edge of our theoretical knowledge. Also, I started looking for the limits of our practical knowledge.
