**Abstract: **The
large number coincidences that fascinated theorists such as
Eddington and Dirac are shown here to be a specific example
of a general set of scaling factors defining universes in
which fundamental forces are equated. The numbers have
prescriptive power and they are therefore correct and exact *a
priori*. The universes thus defined exhibit a fractal
structure centred on the Planck/Stoney scale with some
formal resemblance to black holes and with properties
analogous to Hawking radiation. The problematic case of
emerging and evaporating universes is briefly considered in
the context of quantum gravity. Historically, the large
numbers are associated with the mass of a charged particle
and the mass of the universe. This paper demonstrates that
the numbers are properly understood in the context of four
masses including a non-zero mass derived from Hubble‘s
Constant and the Planck or Stoney mass.
