Assuming that at the bedrock of reality, there is some unary particle from which everything is derived, such that there either is a unary particle in some space or there isn't, how would information such as velocity be encoded?

  • $\begingroup$ take a look at the idea of glider guns in life en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_(cellular_automaton) ... one idea is that particles are like 3d gliders. velocity (eg of a glider) is not exactly encoded into the system directly, its an emergent property of the CA update rules. nobel winner 't Hooft + other leaders such as Susskind advocate CAs/ digital physics ideas. more discussion try chat chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/9446/theory-salon vzn1.wordpress.com/2017/03/31/… $\endgroup$ – vzn Oct 25 '18 at 17:42
