Yes you are entirely correct, I plugged the wrong values into your
equation, I guess my memory isn't as good as I thought it was, putting in
3*10^9 m/s for the speed of light was especially embarrassing. Sorry. But
I still have some concerns and questions.
Whatever its size I admit its sorta neat that your equation produces a pure
dimensionless number, but what reason is there to think it has any physical
significance? Even if it does I don't see how it could ever be proven
because I don't think we will
ever
know the fundamental constants in it to the staggering accuracy required.
And as I said the Hubble "constant" is not a constant and changes with
time, and so would the number your equation produces. And is that h or hbar
in your equation?
