THE most important numbers?

  1. Feb 3, 2009 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I just watched an interesting talk from string theorist Brian Greene and he said something that really captured my curiosity. He mentioned that in the universe there is a list of about 20 incredibly important numbers that we have measured extensively. He then says that if those numbers had any other values then what they do there would be a huge chance the universe wouldn't exist at all.

    So my question was, and Im sorry if this is the wrong forum, what are these numbers?

    Thanks for the help.
