An important conclusion of both string theory and loop quantum gravity theory is that space and time are ultimately discrete. A consequence of discrete space is that there is empty space between the basic elements of space. Analogously, there are empty times between the times where time exists. When time does not exist, it is meaningless to consider the existence of the universe. In this note we consider a discrete-time interpretation of the Planck-Einstein equation and draw a curious conclusion about the real age of the universe.
