“A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather… science advances one funeral at a time.” – Max Planck*
Nobel Laureates: Walther Nernst (1920), Albert Einstein (1921), Max Planck (1918), Robert Millikan (1923) and Max von Laue (1914) on November 11, 1931 in the home of von Laue. They could easily have taken Planck’s simple formula for Planck Time to calculate the 202 doublings to the Age of the Universe. It would have changed everything.
Mitigating Max Planck’s pessimism
BY BRUCE CAMBER RELATED PAGES: OVERVIEW, OPEN LETTER, DARK MATTER/DARK ENERGY, Next
There’s no place or time for arrogance and a lack of openness. There are far too many unanswered questions; we all need to become problem solvers (always, right up until we die). Be like Einstein who said, “The pursuit of truth and beauty is the sphere in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.”
Arrogance blinds the mind. It replaces the real adventure of an open search for that deeper truth and profound beauty (the faces of perfection, symmetry or harmony). Arrogance dulls the naïvetés of our youth. None of us should spend precious time and energy defending incomplete positions, but we always should be encouraging questions and participation.
Going in circles. One hundred years is enough time to tell us that a new direction is needed, that our underlying assumptions are not quite right. Our searches for dark matter and dark energy qualify. Also, time’s arrow has been a problem for centuries. It assuredly qualifies.
The simple part of Max Planck’s formula for Planck Time could change everything. The five pictured above could have mapped the universe during their 1931 dinner together. Perhaps they didn’t have “simplicity” deep within their very being. Perhaps their Nobel prize dulled their curiosity. Planck Time remained an intellectual orphan until 2001 when Frank Wilczek of MIT (Nobel, 2004) lifted this part of Planck’s work out of oblivion. Within three articles in Physics Today, Wilczek recognized Planck’s core concepts. In 2016 we stretched the simple part of Planck’s Formula from Planck Time to the Age of the Universe in 202 doublings.
See lines 2, 3, 4, 5 (horizontally-scrolled chart): Those numbers are begging us to re-examine our concepts of light, space and time.
From 1899 to 1905 Max Planck worked to discern natural units for time, length, mass and charge, all from the properties of nature, not from human constructs. With Einstein’s formula and Planck’s formula, they could readily see that light was a key part of each definition and that length-and-time are clearly derivative and necessarily intertwined.
A simple orientation, a simple formula, a new view of the universe
Double the Planck base units, continue doubling each result, in 202 successive doublings you will have everything, everywhere, for all time, notated in a very tight mathematical relation. It is an outline, the beginning of a working model of the universe.
It has been ignored by the scholarly/academic community. There has been no criticism, no corrections, no related insights. No real response.
First, it challenges the past 40 years of big bang cosmology. Second, “It wasn’t invented here.” Third, it originated in a high school. It doesn’t have the proper pedigree and there have been no professional articles that have been published. Publications have all said, “Not interested.” Scientific American, Science, Nature… all the way to Wikipedia. So, everything is posted on the web.
These are the key points we are carrying forward in each new homepage:
- Everything, everywhere, for all time is encapsulated by starting with the Planck base units, doubling each, then doubling again and again, 202 times to the Age of the Universe and the size of our universe. “That’s inclusive.”
- A natural inflation is defined by these numbers. “Now, that’s a challenge.”
- A formula for light-time-and-space according to Max Planck: light is equal to Planck Length divided by Planck Time. “Planck’s formula appears more basic than Einstein’s!”
- The Now. All notations are always active and deeply-and-profoundly interrelated. Though the first-64 notations are below the current thresholds of measurement, there are still four numbers to study within each notation. “What is time? What is space? See #3 above.”
- Planckspheres. If simplicity is what we need, let us consider how the four Planck base units could manifest first within space-time as spheres. “It is simple and ubiquitous… Pi.”
- Infinity is defined as continuity/order, symmetry/relations, and harmony/dynamics.
- Emergence may begin with sphere stacking and the thrust within those base units.
- An infinite number of symmetry groups are possible within the first-64 notations.

Note: If string theory is incorrect as it is currently constructed, there is plenty of time-and-space to make adjustments and corrections within those first 64 notations. It just has to be part of some kind of unified theory of mathematics. -BEC
More notes: Tensors/Vectors, and reviewing Hopcroft’s Foundations of Data Science (Amazon) and letter. Perhaps we should consider every kind of sleep as a recompiler. See Hopcroft’s Foundations. Every living thing is constantly adding to the fabric of the universe.
“All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.“
