I see what you want to say: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orders_of_magnitude_%28energy%29 .

comment Why is the imaginary unit conventionally put on the right hand side of commutation relations?
I believe this question is more than just about convention. It touches also the question whether a "pure" commutator $[a,b]$ is actually a physical meaningful quantity or not. I believe it is not, because it is a complex quantity and not an observable. But I could be wrong, there might be other important reasons why relations between complex quantities like commutator relations are still of interest in QM and that is why I asked the question.

comment How can it be that the beginning universe had a high temperature and a low entropy at the same time?
Unfortunately the link to the paper is dead. Is this the article you are talking about : Davies, Cosmological dissipative structure, International Journal of Theoretical Physics September 1989, Volume 28, Issue 9, pp 1051-1066 ?
