3 . Seeing the World Through Lens To The 10 th Power From Macroscopic to Microscopic The 10 th Power

4 Starting from 10 0 (That is one meter), we shall increase our distance by the power of 10, from 10 1 (10 meter), 10 2 (10x10 = 100 meter), 10 3 (10x10x10 = 1,000 meter), 10 4 (10x10x10x10 = 10,000 meter) and so on, until we reach cosmic macroscopic infinity. From our starting point, we shall travel upward quickly with a speed increasing by 10 to the positive power, stop and then move oppositely with a speed increasing by 10 to the negative power, until we finally reach a magical microscopic world. Please carefully observe the First Law of Thermodynamics, please also contemplate as humans how much more we need to learn about our universe... Let’s buckle up!

5 Bon Voyage! Are you ready?

6 In the garden, view of a leaf from 1 meter distance m Zoom out

7 At 10 meters high, we see a cluster of vegetation m Zoom out higher

8 At this altitude, we see borders of the vegetation and a school m Zoom out higher and higher

9 We now switch from meter to kilometer We will probably need parachutes from this altitude km Zoom out higher, higher…

10 View of a entire city at this altitude, however, we are no longer able to see individual buildings km Zoom out until view of city

11 View of Florida state of USA at this altitude km Now state of Florida

12 This is a typical satellite view of the state of Florida ,000 km Satellite view

13 Parts of the Northern and Southern Hemisphere ,000 km Northern and Southern Hemisphere

14 At this moment, the Earth is getting smaller and smaller ,000 km Earth getting smaller

15 Orbit of the Moon around the Earth is represented by the white circle million km Moon’s Orbit

16 Orbit of the Earth is represente d by the blue arc million km Earth’s Orbit

17 million km Orbit of Venus is represented by the green arc and orbit of the Earth is represented by the blue arc Venus and Earth

18 Mercury,Venus, Earth and Jupiter’s orbits billion km The other Orbits

19 From this altitude,we can see the solar system and the orbits of the nine planets billion km The solar system…

20 billion km The solar system looks smaller from this altitude 10 to the power of 14

21 Now, the solar system looks just like one of the stars billion km Solar system looks like a star

22 From the distance of one light year, the solar system looks very tiny light year Solar system hard to see

23 From this infinitude, we cannot even see the solar system light years Solar system not seen

24 “There is nothing” all we can see is stars and nebula light years Stars and nebula

25 ,000 light years At this distance, we are now travelling in the Milky Way The Milky Way

26 We continue to tour the Milky Way ,000 light years The Milky Way Tour

27 We are now at the periphery of the Milky Way ,000 light years Outskirts of Milky Way

28 From this far distance, we can see not only the milky way, but also other galaxies million light years Other Galaxies

29 At this distance, all the galaxies seem small and far from each other. Every part of the universe is governed by the same physical laws. We can continue to travel with our imaginations, but right now, let us hurry home million light years Universe and galaxies

30 From this far distance, we can see not only the milky way, but also other galaxies million light years Other Galaxies

31 We are now at the periphery of the Milky Way ,000 light years Outskirts of Milky Way

32 We continue to tour the Milky Way ,000 light years The Milky Way Tour

33 ,000 light years At this distance, We are now travelling in the Milky Way The Milky Way

34 “There is nothing” All we can see is stars and nebula light years Stars and nebula

35 From this infinitude, we cannot even see the solar system light years Solar system not seen

36 From the distance of one light year, the solar system looks very tiny light year Solar system hard to see

37 Now, the solar system looks just like one of the stars billion km Solar system looks like a star

38 billion km The solar system looks smaller from this altitude 10 to the power of 14

39 From this altitude,we can see the solar system and the orbits of the nine planets billion km The solar system…

40 Mercury, Venus, Earth and Jupiter’s orbits billion km The other Orbits

41 million km Orbit of Venus is represented by the green arc and orbit of the Earth is represented by the blue arc. Venus and Earth

42 Orbit of the Earth is represente d by the blue arc million km Earth’s Orbit

43 Orbit of the Moon around the Earth is represented by the white circle million km Moon’s Orbit

44 At this moment, the Earth is getting smaller and smaller ,000 km Earth getting bigger

45 Parts of the Northern and Southern Hemisphere ,000 km Northern and Southern Hemisphere

46 This is a typical satellite view of the state of Florida ,000 km Satellite view

47 View of Florida state of USA at this altitude km Now state of Florida

48 10 4 Questions we ask ourselves.. Who are we? Where are we from? Where are we going? Questions?

49 10 3 Or…What do we amount to in this universe? Our value

50 10 2 During this travel, “Keep going up” took us as far as Down to10 2

51 10 1 Now, we are turning to another direction to look down and inwards... Turn around

52 Now we have returned to the starting point of this trip, and this distance is within reach of our arm Back to point A

53 We are closing in to a distance of 10 cm, and now we can describe what a leaf looks like cm Learning & Thinking

54 From this distance we can observe the fine structures of a leaf cm Zoom in at a closer look

55 The cellular structure of the leaf tissue begins to appear mm Cellular structure

56 Cells can be seen clearly. You can observe how cells are architecture d together micro Micro view of cells

57 Our journey is entering inside the cell… micron Cells

58 Cell nucleus can be seen now micron Cell Nucleus

59 We alter the measure unit again to observe more tiny objects Now you can see the chromosome of cells ,000 angstrom (Å) (parts per hundred million cm) Chromosome

60 Under this microscopi c view, we are able to see the DNA double helix chains Å The DNA

61 We see the DNA chain is made up of nucleotide molecules joint together…let us go inside a molecule Å DNA chains

62 Looking at the electrons clouds of a carbon atoms (that make up all living things on earth). You will see that the microscopic view looks very similar to the macroscopic universe Å Similarity of macro/micro view

63 picometer In this atomic world, we see electrons circulating around the atomic nucleus, made up of protons & neutrons Atomic nucleus

64 Seems to be an infinite amount of space between the electron orbit and the nucleus picometer Infinite space

65 Under this unbelievable microscopic view, we can see the atomic nucleus femtometer 1 picometer = 1,000 femtometer Microscopic view

66 Finally, we can see the carbon atomic nucleus …let us go inside the nucleus femtometer Atomic nucleus

67 Now we enter the world of scientific imagination, face to face with the proton femtometer Nucleus to proton

68 Seeing the Quark Particle that make up the proton. We cannot get any closer. We have reached the limit of modern science, the boundaries of our current understanding of our physical universe Atómeters Learning & Thinking

69 So think about it, are you the center of the universe? Are you a special creation amongst the billions of other creations in the world? What exist outside of our boundary? Is there any boundary? Think about it, if we go “down”, we can only go as small as , and reach the limit (or at least to the limit that is defined by Modern Science). However, if we go “up”, we can only go as far as Yet, we can follow our imagination and continue our journey as far as we want. So, who can say we are living alone in this universe? Learning & Thinking

70 Assignments 1.Which number is bigger? The last number from the Avatamsaka Sūtra or the last number from the modern USA and Modern British scheme how many log 10 did we venture from the tiniest to the largest magnifications? 3.Think of some examples when huge numbers are useful
