We started our work to chart the universe in 2011 using the Planck Length. We tiled and tessellated the universe using base-2 notation and an ascending sizes starting with the Planck Length. We uncovered 202 notations  to encapsulate the universe, everything, everywhere, for all time. Among others, we asked Frank Wilczek about its meaning. Later Aguirre, Rees and Tegmark were also queried.

Key Charts: The Aguirre-Rees-Tegmark-Wilczek original article appeared on January 11, 2006 in ArXiv.  Although not mentioned in the article or footnotes, I have a sense that the 2005 Solvay conference created a thrust that prompted them to write their article. It will be analyzed asking the question, “What might change within this analysis if the Big Bang theory and its current inflationary theory is flawed and what if the Big Board-little universe, Exponential Universe, and Quiet Expansion are less flawed?” Our charts are entirely open;  we re just raising questions and looking at the options. Yes, our chart, by definition,  includes everything, for all time, everywhere in the universe, but it’s just a chart of numbers, not a theory of everything.

Those theories may be forthcoming. Thank you. -BEC
