Assume that we have access to a computer with unlimited computing power. As with the Lattice QCD can try to prove that we live in a simulated universe? Apparently, one may use the issue of cosmic ...
I was watching one of Neil Degrasse Tyson talks and there was a scientist (can't recall his name sorry) who was talking about a recent discovery: "Doubly-even self-dual linear binary ...
Alright, Lets assume that I have a computer with limited calculation speed (1-4GHz) but unlimited parallel processing capability and unlimited memory capacity to go with it. Under this assumption ...
I know there are theories (or postulates) that hold that our Universe could be a simulation. I was wondering, if Special Relativity states that two events which are not causally linked can be judged ...
Can physical states be treated as information (strings over some alphabet)? If (1) is true, isn't this a trivial conclusion that the universe can be simulated by a Turing machine or a cellular ...
If the universe is just a Matrix- like simulation, how could we ever know? Physicist Silas Beane of the University of Bonn, Germany, thinks he has the answer!. His paper “Constraints on the Universe ...
While working on physics simulation software, I noticed that I had implemented discrete time (the only type possible on computers). By that I mean that I had an update mechanism that advanced the ...
This is not the same as: How many bytes can the observable universe store? The Bekenstein bound tells us how many bits of data can be stored in a space. Using this value, we can determine the ...
I was reading about interesting article here which suggests that our universe is a big computer simulation and the proof of it is a Quantum Physics. I know quantum physics tries to provide some ...
