These are two of the most simple views of the entire known universe and everything within it. Each step is necessarily related through the simplest math and geometry.

Big Board - little universe

Introduction. In ten
rather quick steps,
you will see our universe
as we did in a geometry class
back on December 19, 2011.

On the left is a small image
of what we dubbed,
the Big Board-little universe.
We then wanted to present
the data in an even more
simple format.


On the right is an image of what we call, the Universe Table.  Both images are still being developed and both are the result of base-2 exponential notation from the Planck Length looking at how interior geometry, starting with a tetrahedron and octahedron, multiplied by two encompass the universe within 205.1 notations.

We would like to take you on a quick tour. Come back any time. Take as long as you want. Set your own pace.

On the bottom right of each page, you will see a green arrow. When you are ready to move on, just click on it.   In the bottom left corner of each page, there is a pink arrow. If for any reason you want to go back a page, click on it.

Both charts represent the same thing – the entire universe. The smallest measurement is the Planck Length. The largest is the Observable Universe. We will be examining both in much greater detail soon.

This project began in a high school geometry class. We looked inside two of the simplest geometric figures, a tetrahedron and octahedron (pictures and more analysis will be included on this tour) and we kept going deeper inside until we reached the Planck length. Then, to standardize the listings, we started at the Planck Length and multiplied it by 2 until we were at the Observable Universe. We were flummoxed to discover that there were less than 206 notations or doublings. We put the number somewhere between 202.34-to-205.11 notations and we’ll explain more about those notations as we walk throughout our exquisitely little universe together.

There are so many more surprises, but first let us look more closely at the Planck Length and the Observable Universe. Click here.

Notes about Look-and-feel and Navigation: If at any time during this tour, the letters from far right column, such as Recent Posts or  Archives  and Meta   are bleeding through the image of the Universe Table, please open your window larger (possibly to full screen). Usually if you click on the last sentence in each description you will go to the next page.

More notes about the how these charts came to be:

The simple conceptual background story An article (unpublished) to attempt to further analyze this simple model.  There are pictures of a tetrahedron and octahedron. A background story: It started in a high school geometry class on December 19, 2011. The sequel: Almost two years later, a student stimulates the creation of this little tour.
