A new formulation of special relativity is described. It is based on a postulate that the universe is a vast Cellular Automata (CA). We show that any CA model automatically leads to a maximum speed limit for the transfer of information from place to place in CA space, and hence leads to strict physical locality of all physical interactions. Furthermore, we show that the Lorentz transformation follows mathematically from CA theory, where photon propagation is postulated to be the simply shifting…
