An Open Letter
by Bruce Camber
Dear Visitor and Reader,
Is there an integrative set of concepts that can help to build bridges between hostile people? Worldviews have become so small in light of our new high-definition cosmology with her trillions of galaxies. It all seems so overwhelming. We, the people, seem so trivialized by our latest advances within the sciences. Does it seem possible that, just maybe, we are all working within the wrong model of the universe?
Here is an introduction to a very simple integrative model of the universe; it needs critical review. It needs people to challenge it! We will start at the very smallest mathematical unit that is a measure of time — it is called Planck Time. Our goal is to get to the largest unit; it’s called The Age of the Universe. That’s just a bit of commonsense. Base-2 exponentiation — multiplying by 2 — is also a very simple concept; but when applied to Planck Time, it becomes mind-boggling. Planck Time is so small it will take 144 times — multiplying each new number by 2 — before we finally break through one second. Yes, at the 143rd notation, the universe is just over a second old. Within just 58 more notations (200+ notations), the universe will become its current age — 13.8 billion years old and it continues to get older, second by second.
That’s hard to believe; just over 200 doublings define the universe. Scroll that chart and look at all the simple numbers. It makes the old chessboard and wheat story look small.
The key question is, “What does it mean when lifted up as the beginnings of an integrated universe view?”
Time is past, present, and future; and, space is defined by three dimensions: height, width and depth. Of course, there is a certain truth within our commonsense views, but these truths are relative and personal and do not apply universally. In a rather unusual sense of the word, it is as if we each create our own universe.
