A Most-Simple Start
and Different Model of the Universe

by Bruce E. Camber (your comments are most welcomed)

John Archibald Wheeler’s 1986 vision of “so simple, so beautiful

We are beginning to see the reality of physicist John Archibald Wheeler’s increasingly well-known statement, “Behind it all is surely an idea so simple, so beautiful, that when we grasp it — in a decade, a century, or a millennium — we will all say to each other, how could it have been otherwise?[5]

Our on-going narrative — under construction since 2011
(all links open pages within this website)

This “most-simple” start uses most-simple concepts. The first is that the universe is logically and mathematically parsed within 202 base-2 notations using Planck’s natural units. Through the stacking-and-packing of infinitesimal spheres that are defined by those Planck numbers, this emergent universe naturally includes everything, everywhere, for all time.

Math is math. Logic is logic. An expanding universe, it readily goes from that very first-moment in time to this very moment, within what many scholars and scientists call the Now. In 2013 we also thought, “It’ll be a great STEM tool.”

The second big concept is that the most-simple physical object is the sphere and the most-simple qualities of pi — continuity-symmetry-and-harmony — are defined by a sphere. That is a very different orientation to the infinite than Kurt Gödel and David Hilbert gave us. That it renders an expansion of 539 tredecillion infinitesimal spheres per second is a very different perception of a cosmological constant. And, here the earliest universe, up to and through the first year, starts infinitesimally small but at the highest-possible speed, uniformity, and packing density. That’s Notation-0 to Notation-169.

The third big concept has very little precedence. Nobody is talking about “a domain of perfection.” Yet the speed of emergence and those packing densities do not allow for the gaps of quantum fluctuations to emerge. Of course, there will be many who will object to reducing all fluctuations to the geometries of a gap. Based on a bit of guessing, today that domain could readily extend to about Notation-50 yet could, on occasion, extend much higher. Of course, the mathematics of imperfections whereby all quantum fluctuations are reduced to the geometries of a gap also has little precedence. Notwithstanding, it seems that the logic of gap geometries remains to be studied within academia.

And, the fourth big concept to consider is the finite-infinite relation which has been reduced to those three commingled concepts being generated by pi, continuity-symmetry-harmony.

There are over 30 presuppositions that we’ve made to come to these four simple concepts.

Four concepts: Right or wrong? Who shall we ask?

So we are on a search to learn why these concepts are on the right path or the wrong path. Here is a sample of recent questions of leading scholars around the world:

  1. Do you know any scholar who is making it his or her mission to study the geometric gaps starting with the five-tetrahedral gap that Aristotle missed? Lagarias and Zong were awarded the 2015 AMS Conant prize for their studies of the tetrahedral gap. Unfortunately they focused on packing densities and not on that gap’s effects throughout the scales of physics (original).
  2. There are many who are studying beyond the standard model and many who start at the Planck base unitsDo you know of any scholar who is looking at a base-2 expansion of those Planck units? 
  3. There are just 202 notations from the smallest possible measurement of space-time to the largest. The infinitesimal notations, 1-64, represent an area for composites that I suspect are already defined by mathematicians within operadic theory and within these nine groups. Might we hypothesize that its all on the grid?
  4. Do you know of any scholar who would not object if we were to say that infinitesimal composites start at or near the Planck base units?

Where and what are our missteps?

In December 2011 we were so sure that we were onto something a little different, we created that first chart: The project went by two names: Big Board-little universe and Quiet Expansion.
In January 2012, we began writing about it and posted it within free webpages so we could ask for critical reviews.
By 2013 we were asking for help from the very finest scientists: Frank Wilczek, Freeman Dyson, Stephen Hawking, Alan Guth and so many others. Nobody corrected us. And, every time we were ignored, it would embolden us to find scholars who could help us; “Somebody will know why we are wrong.”
By 2016, we wrote it up as sensibly as we could and every journal ignored us. Not even the American Academy of Arts & Sciences would take time to reply. That is when we got the domain,, to consolidate everything that we had written and to begin to dig down as deeply as needed to find the foundations and grounds for truth.


I know there will be push back, especially where we explore how values and ethics6 come from within the finite-infinite definitions of continuity-symmetry-and-harmony. It seems natural, but I guess it is too simple for many.

Today, we look more closely at the issues being popularly addressed on the web within places like ArXiv, Physical Review, and so many others. We are learning about new concepts and new studies every day. It is great fun and eventually we will understand why we are on the wrong path, or perhaps, why we are on a good path that will open new doors to see new vistas. Thank you.



Endnotes & Footnotes
There may not be many because all these points already have pages within this website.

[1] How could it have been otherwise? Two key links: The first moment of time is Planck Time. It is Notation-0 and it is always the start of the universe. How can it be otherwise? If we were to apply base-2 to Planck Time there are just 202 base-2 notations to the current time. Within academia, it is often referred to as the Now

Those 202 base-2 notations necessarily encapsulate everything, everywhere, for all time. It is not that hard to grasp. Our sixth-grade AP class and high school students mostly got it.

Unfortunately the big bang theory gets in the way. During his lifetime, nobody wanted to be hard on Stephen Hawking. He was suffering enough. Plus, the world has always been desperate for heroes and true leaders, yet we haven’t been taught how to think about these people. We tend to put them on a pedestal and celebrate their celebrity status. Instead, we all need to be taught that people and information are dynamic and we all have failings. We were so excited about our simple model we even to wrote to Hawking. Questioning people and ideas was what we were taught to do even though they are on a pedestal and seem untouchable.

Now, our first use of this Wheeler quote was in a 2015 document: It will now be re-worked a little.

[2] Exponential growth. A simple logic and dimensional analysis inspired the conclusion that there is one infinitesimal sphere per unit of the Planck base units. It’s an assumption or hypothesis. The result is exponential growth which renders 539 tredecillion spheres per second most-quickly, most-densely, and most-efficiently. It amounts to a heretofore undeclared cosmological constant.

[3] Perfections and Imperfections.There will be a fair amount of push back from the classic physics community. I am not sure why there hasn’t been a more pointed study of Aristotle’s mistake and Newton’s absolute time. The simple formula for pi renders geometries-and-notations with perfect continuity-symmetry-harmony. The geometries of the gap are such a natural foundation for quantum fluctuations, how has it been missed?

[4] Finite-Infinite. The working relation between the finite and the infinite can be simplified by grasping a deeper understanding of the oldest, most-used equation in history, pi (π). We all need to learn to be more gracious.

A more simple definition of infinity is overdue.

[5] John Wheeler, his 1986 article, and the quote. John Archibald Wheeler had an enormous, global reputation. His focus was to define the most fundamental relations. By 1986 the particle zoo was overflowing. He knew that we were all missing something simple. So if you click on that quote, “Behind it all is surely an idea so simple, so beautiful, that when we grasp it — in a decade, a century, or a millennium, — we will all say to each other, how could it have been otherwise? the link opens to the full article. If he were alive today, I would be asking for his advice, “Is this simple enough? Or, is it too simple?”

[6] Ethics and values from the sphere. Given the failings and aggressions of the leadership in the USA, China, Russia, Iran, North Korea and so many others throughout our little world, it behooves the academic world to come up with a better model of the universe and the meaning and value of life. This model proposed from the most-simple concepts also has a value proposition, possibly an ethical bias:

There will always be more to come.
