Since distance is so important to my fantasy, I got to wondering what

would really be the smallest distance and not borrow Planck's QA which

didn't satisfy my mind anyway.

Scrapping all of our earth-centric conventions as "in the beginning"

there was no earth or sun nor anything but energy, an infinite source

of energy, setting there at rest but full of potential, an infinite

source of potential energy.

How far could the first release of energy/mass go?

I think "inertia" holds the answer. With infinite source of energy to

be released how could anything hold it back? First establish some

notation, d0 is the Singularity, d1 is the first measurable distance

traveled by the stuff. What could limit reaching d1? The same thing

as limits the movement of light - inertia. Light is energy in the

beginning, right?

Need to stop for a moment and take a look at time.

Using V=d1t, lets take it apart. V will use the dimensions inherited

from d and t. What is t, surprise it is also d.

By convention 't" is expressed in seconds, hours, days etc.

What is a day? It is the distance traveled in one day's earth

rotation. AND that is 24,900 meters. I hope I pulled the right

number. Not that it is important, what matters is the ability to make

distance an equivalent to time. Now we can forget time. Replace "t"

with d1 meters/1 earth orbit or 24,900 meters.

V=d1/24,900. A ratio, set in desired conventional terms. The distance

traveled becomes a ratio of item-distance traveled compared to earth

travel distance. Faster is the ratio of d1/d(earth).

Back to the beginning. I can predict that the first release of an

infinite amount of energy will be limited by inertia. The distance

traveled from e0 to emax can be set as our cosmological unit of

distance d1. How about the distance traveled from emax to e2? It

will be longer, but more constant. That is the problem, emax-e2 will

be longer and not qualify as absolute d(min). There may be cases

where energy starting from rest needs to be expressed. To satisfy the

requirement there not be a smaller unit, I think we must set the first

distance as limited by acceleration.

Anyway, there is my cosmological unit of distance. I bet it can be

quantified by experiment. Just have enough energy to allow unlimited

flow until limited by inertia and measure the distance traveled.

Don't have a Heisenberg problem as we only need distance traveled

until max energy propagation is reached. I bet there are those that

could even calculate/predict the size. Once this quantum distance is

formalize, all other measurements are just ratios.
