Can anyone explain what's going on here, in a way that isn't just a lot of gee-whiz?
I'm more of a computer science person than a physicist, so error-correcting codes are nothing new to me.
If he says there are such codes embedded in the equations of supersymmetry, what does that mean?
Can the encoded info be read? i.e. does the universe have a genome?
Do the equations contain errors?
What is the channel through which the codes are passed that might introduce errors?
How many errors per code block can be detected, and how many corrected?
