The Universal Size Spectrum

Brad G. Bermanunconfirmed user (Oregon State University)

Published in astro.philica.com

There is little difference between the principles behind a telescope and a microscope.
If one could scan and digitize the gravitational structure of the entire background of the sky by somehow generating a spherical “googolplex-pixel” snapshot, then to examine that resulting digitized picture with a computer program, a super microscope, or perhaps a particle accelerator, would that activity not be the same as turning a microscope into an ad hoc telescope? Where does one principle end and the other begin? At first, it seems obvious that a telescope may be required for the sky scan, but is it really necessary? Why not utilize a particle accelerator instead? The answers become clearer if we realize that we seem to reside at the very center of a “Universal Size Spectrum”. However, this size spectrum appears to terminate at the large and small ends because we have a weak mental model of largeness and smallness inside our head. The large only appears large until we go there in an imaginary space ship and make atomic contact with the small.
Then, perhaps this size spectrum is actually circular, spanning over 60 orders of size magnitude. If true, at what point would the very large be merging with the smallest of size? The obvious answer is: right in front of us, at the point of physical contact, where and when the future meets the past, where atoms merge with spacetime (Timespace). Moreover, that merging seems to be mediated by the force of gravity and all the phenomena of inertia.
Then, perhaps space is invisible because it is at the smallest end of the spectrum, existing in the form of a structure comprised of that same googolplex full of virtual photons and electron valence bands, containing all the mechanisms of time. Within this plenum would then be all the blueprints for all the forms of the material world, all the past and future time line possibilities unfolding in our material world, as well as our consciousness.
