# The Poetry of Light Bottling Time

Overview: In September 2018, I sent this email to a scholar at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) in Princeton. IAS is a mecca for intellectuals. All their people receive so much email, I am surprised when anyone responds. However, the most simple part of Planck’s definition of Planck Time, in plain sight since 1906, could be revisited. By applying base-2 to the Planck units, especially Planck Time, light is given an expanded role (line 10). I think it is curious and could use some commentary so I have sent this letter along to those who have received emails or tweets but they may not have considered this equation for light. -BEC

RE:  Thinking about the relation between light and space-time

Is it reasonable to consider Max Planck’s simple definition of time when we talk about the interior of the space-time?

Rather surprisingly Planck’s more simple formula actually computes well with experimental results. And, if base-2 notation is applied to Planck Time, it computes well within every notation, not just at one second. It is a variable as each quantity is multiplied by 2. Yet, that variable appears to remain within 1% throughout all 202 notations from Planck Time at the start to the current time.

By inserting the other base units along this scale of the universe, the data sets become more challenging, yet the simple correspondence between length and time tells a profound story. The correspondence with mass and charge, though stretching the imagination, still retains a deep logic and continuity.

Might you comment? …just nonsense?

Thank you.

Most sincerely,
Bruce

3. In that “second header” there are links to the past 25 homepages. “Just Prior” always goes to the most recent, then each number is active to the next prior homepage.  The image goes to the horizontally-scrolled chart as does its tagline.
4. Values and ethics:  Within our study of universals and constants, there is a sense of value that gives rise to values and ethics. The antithesis is nihilism which eventually opens us all to the various forms of dystopia we are experiencing today.

## More key evocative questions:

Back in my very early days at Synectics Education Systems (1971-    ), in the days of analogies and metaphors, one of the most important activities was trying to grasp key evocative questions. Here are a few of those questions explored within this site:
