    2. Wikipedia: Graphical timeline from Big Bang to Heat Death but note that the left-hand vertical scale is tricky, for greater than about > 0, it is x=100*log(log(t_year)) and so t_year=10**(10**(x/100)))

    6. Beyond quantum cosmology: Planck Cosmology: with Planck units and Planck density. Where does Planck Cosmology? In black holes?
      1. The point black hole singularity?
      2. Or the ring singularity?
