A very bizarre question came to my mind a long time ago and I'm pretty much unable to get the answer to it. This is my question: Have you ever thought that our basic number system might be inappropriate? Like think of some of the values of all the mathematical constants in the world like Gravitational constant, Boltzman constant, mass of elementary particles and many many more constants of such kind. All these have values that are either extremely small or extremely big. What if there was an alternate set of numbers, different from our decimal number system, that has the values of the fundamental natural constants in "whole numbers". What if we could represent all the quantifiable things in multiples of some parameter or a set of parameters of some elementary particle or force. Is there a possibility of the existence of such a parallel "number system", which might behave very differently than our usual 0-9 numbers.
