GRAVITON FREQUENCY MATTER

"Quantum V^2 Frequency"
frequency = (G*D)^1/2 - Lucifer formula
current = [(G*D)^1/2]*charge - Shiva formula
force = [(G*D)^1/2]*momentum - Devil formula
energy = [(G*D)^1/2]*action - Satan formula
power = [(G*D)^1/2]*energy - Iblis formula

GRAVITON DENSITY MATTER

"Graviton-Photon Energy"
Energy = [(G*D)^1/2]*2h*alpha - Krishna formula
Energy = [(G*D)^1/2]*hbar - Moses formula
Energy = [(G*D)^1/2]*e^2*z0 - Aaron formula
Energy = [(G*D)^1/2]*e^2/e0*c - Laozi formula
Energy = [(G*D)^1/2]*e^2*u0*c - Gautama formula

PHYSICS LAWS MATTER

"Graviton-Photon Mass"
mass = [(G*D)^1/2]*2h*alpha/c^2 - Yahya formula
mass = [(G*D)^1/2]*hbar/c^2 - Isa formula
mass = [(G*D)^1/2]*e^2*z0/c^2 - Mormon formula
mass = [(G*D)^1/2]*e^2/e0*c^3 - Muhammad formula
mass = [(G*D)^1/2]*e^2*u0/c - Ali formula

THE UNIVERSE MATTER

the root of the universe .0123456789... is every one .1111111111...
the root of every one .1111111111... is every three .3333333333...
the root inverse 3 space / time being the speed of light-bearer...
SI System of units' definitions are close to the Creator's sets...

P of graviton = c^5/G, F of graviton = c^4/G, c = P/F
G = 2/c, c = 2/G, 2 = G*c (natural units)
V = (G*D)^1/2 (the 3 in 1)
