About the Planck units[edit]

There used to be a much better version that since many unnecessary things were added and many necessary facts and insights were removed mostly by two editors, one of whom is banned and the other is a school teacher. This version was the last version before Truthnlove and Lucrecius really messed up the article. I am no longer fighting the battles to keep Wikipedia quality up. You might want to take a look at that and read about the issue of scaling in physics and what that says about claims of variable speed of light, variable G, or variable ħ. Viewed from the perspective of Planck units, there is no meaning to the concepts of any dimensionful physical constants varying. There is meaning only to dimensionless physical constants varying. Ultimately all of physics is a description of dimensionless quantities, and there are many choices of natural units one can use to measure and describe physical quantity, but Planck units are unique in that there are no assumptions made about any properties of any particle, prototype object, or "thing". They normalize free space and the superficial laws governing interaction in free space, and then, when particles like electrons (or the quarks and leptons) are introduced, they have properties of mass and charge and spin that are inherent to the particles and measurable or describable as dimensionless numbers (in terms of Planck units) that are independent of the man-made system of units.

Personally, I think that the most natural units are just like Planck units except they would normalize 4πG and ε0 rather than normalizing G and 4πε0 as Planck units do. Then you will see those factors of 4π disappear from the equations of physical law. c and ħ would remain 1 as in Planck units. These are sorta like Lorentz–Heaviside units and it turns out that the elementary charge, measured in these most natural units comes out to be = 0.30282212 . I've been told in QED or QCD theory, that this number is also confirmed as the natural measure of charge of electrons. You can think of the fine-structure constant, α, as taking on the value it does because of the inherent amount of charge, measured in natural units, that nature has bestowed upon the electron and the quarks with charge.
