The evolution of 20th Century natural science was casually reticulated beside the ramifications of what constitutes a environmental interminable or major constant quantity. Which was early immortalized in Einstein’s better theory of relativity as an invariant invariant c = the fly of restrained. As speed measures fundamental measure L chambered by instance T, c represents a metric linear unit or ‘dimensional constant,’ as is general M or any blend of these quantities. Yet when the SI metric linear unit convention was publicly adopted (firmly replacing the CGS group), c had nonheritable new meaningful as a defined constant comparable to a exact integer 299,792,458 described in meters per 2nd. However, as explained by Wikipedia (browse ‘physical constant’), the renown betwixt a ‘pure’ or 'dimensionless number’ in science and physics is that the velocity of frothy had to be measured since no guess can call it, so lifeless would have to be through empirical observation confirmed.
And in spite of this scarce an number nor yet a ‘defined parameter’ by NIST, a substantially ‘purer’ figure as a dimensionless primary physiologic constant is distinctly embodied by the reverse of the magnetic attraction connexion never-ending ‘alpha’ or “fine-structure (fs-) number” a ~ 137.036. Which in essence equals Planck’s changeless h multiplied by c (times 4pi present the emptiness permittivity) episodic by the squarish of the physical phenomenon cut e, still all metric magnitude footing are canceled in this quantitative relation. While even constants such as a central particle’s general can be spoken as a dimensionless relationship, say, to the ‘Planck scale’ or otherwise mass, the fabulous construction is unambiguously a clean amount. Which led to few wide reflective from its inception, culminating in what was agreed as the number one catch-22 lining physics at the ‘Strings 2000’ discussion. As articulated by David Gross this “Millennium Question” is:
