Important Numbers

The Buddhist Incalculable:

1 followed by 352 septillions of kilometers of zeros
allowing that one zero occupies a length of one-thousandth of a meter
and being the length of one life of the universe


Planck's Constant:

6.6260693 x 10-34 Joule seconds
(very small)
This number is used in calculations derived from the observation of subatomic physics. If a different number is substituted, the equations don't work out, so, it is often said, the universe would fail to exist as we know it.
