POWERS OF 10 ZOOM
FROM MICRO TO MACRO COSMOS
This is a trip at high speed, jumping distances by a factor of 10.
We’ll start with 100 (equivalent to 1 meter), and will increase the size by a factor of 10, or 101 (10 meters), 102 (10x10 = 100 meters, 103 (10x10x10 = 1,000 meters), 104 (10x10x10x10 = 10,000 meters), so on, until we reach the limit of our imagination in the direction of the macro cosmos.
Later we’ll return, a little faster, back to the point where we started & continue our trip in the opposite direction reducing distances of travel by factors of 10 into the micro cosmos.
We will observe the constancy of the laws of the universe and think about how much the human race still needs to learn...
And now ... Are you the center of the universe?
Are you the special creature of the Creatión?
What is behind the limits? Are there any limits?
Note that going downwards we could only go to the power of minus 16ª of 10 to reach the (known?) limits of matter... But upwards we went to the power of 23ª of 10 and stopped... But we could have continued our trip subject only to the limits to our imagination!!!!
... then? ... Who says that we are alone in the universe?
