I'd wager that an inordinate proportion of interesting is going to happen in between 10x1 and 10x2 on this scale. And not just because I have a reasonable chance to be around for it.

It would be interesting to see a similar post, going down towards the big rip. I'm not sure I believe it's all that likely, but there's a certain mathematical symmetry to it..


Nice overview! Though one nicpick, proton decay is still a theoretical prediction from certain GUT theories. So far there hasn't been any experimental verification that proton decay do occur and GUT theories aren't exactly considered to be quite likely.

The jury's still out on whether proton decay does exist.


Thank you for this post. This is an interesting point of view to scaling down and up.


You might want to fix this up.

When you went backwards, you had used 10^-1, 10^-2, 10^-3, ...
This is known as 0.1, 0.01, 0.001, ...

Perhaps it would make better sense to use -10^1, -10^2, -10^3, ...

Oops! Thanks, 'anon', for the correction. It's obvious, now that you mention it, and it's surprising that no one else caught the simple mistake. I'll get it fixed.
