**The Planck Scale is defined by G, c and h.**

###### by Bruce E. Camber Under construction – pre-first draft Questions **EMAIL** TWEETS COMMENT

Given the illustration1 above, G is the gravitational constant; *c* is the speed of light in a vacuum; and, ħ is the reduced Planck constant. An expert tells us, “The first two govern the strength of gravity and ħ sets the scale of quantum effects. Using them, one can form a mass, a charge, a length and a time.”

If taken as a given, the resulting values in Illustration 1, render the first moment of spacetime. With its mass and charge, it has “thingness” and becomes the basis of *Forms*.

The first 64 notations are below our abilities to measure; yet along the way to Notation 202, this progression fully absorbs all the numbers of big bang cosmology. We also are true to Lemaitre’s original notion of a cold start. It has been documented, yet I have not yet found anybody who seems to know how it all shifted to a hot start.

**The first physical thing and unit of time**. If something were to manifest in Notation-1, what might it be? When asked that question of our high school geometry students who had been studying circles, spheres, tetrahedrons and octahedrons, there was some discussion, but the consensus was that the sphere would have been the very first object. It was the most simple and cubic-close packing of equal spheres set a causative order. It follows from the formulas where pi (π) dominates, and the “never-ending, never-repeating” numbers of pi seemed to be a bridge between the finite and infinite.

**A theory came much later**. Questions were raised about sphere-stacking and cubic-close packing of equal spheres (ccp). Of course, that then opened further discussion of the Fourier transform (we were just beginning to learn about it).

We hypothesize based on observations. We reify based on intuitions. We hypostatize based on deep-seated beliefs. In this case, our foundations of understanding came out of a belief that infinity is best identified as

(1) continuity creating order creating number creating time,

(2) symmetry creating relations creating geometries creating space, and

(3) harmony creating dynamics creating spacetime moments creating spacetime-and-mass/charge.

It is the beginning of a theory and it outlines how the four Planck base units are all derivative and are exponentially expanding one infinitesimal sphere at a time.
