  • Couldany universe satisfy the following conditions? (i) Each volume of space contains only a finite amount of information, because space and time come in discrete units. (ii) Over some range of size and speed, the mechanics of this world are approximately classical. Imagine a crystalline world of tiny, discrete “cells,” each knowing only what its nearest neighbors do. In such a universe, we’ll construct analogs of particles and fields, and ask what it would mean for these to satisfy constraints… CONTINUE READING
