Well, at least to me, I'm no expert in any field at all. But hey, I've got a few steps for you:<br /><br />1. Invent a device that allows you to record the entire universe.<br />2. Step out of the universe.<br />3. Go to the start of the universe (or any preferred point if it turns out to be cyclic or something).<br />4. Press 'Record' and wait until the end of the universe.<br />5. Step back into the universe.<br />6. Study results.<br />7. Create perfect model of the universe you just recorded.<br /><br />Done.<br /><br />(though technically the universe after you step back in will not be the same as the previous one, since you've brought in the perfect model of the universe and introduced a new set of information (finite or otherwise) into the universe)Anonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13834775748432929357noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-24244078.post-62541302565268791822008-07-18T02:30:00.000+01:002008-07-18T02:30:00.000+01:00It was just childish interest and also the root to...It was just childish interest and also the root to much madness and lots of wasted time, <BR/><BR/>Time is quantised but then in my slightly oddball model, a natural structure for "unit" time evolved and .... well it doesn't matter because the good news is obviously Heisenberg uncertainty principle acts as information barrier, so it's actually a moot point as you can't determine everything anyway, so why bother worrying.swardleyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04702421918430488600noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-24244078.post-35918668835506245672008-07-18T00:56:00.000+01:002008-07-18T00:56:00.000+01:00time is quantised, either as the plank time, or in...time is quantised, either as the plank time, or in your virtual universe the clock resolution. Your universe(s) are therefore bounded and finite.<BR/><BR/>Certainly from the perspective of perception it's easy to argue that our limits are bounded and finite - the numbers are just quite large.<BR/><BR/>you might like <A HREF="http://www.dgen.net/blog/index.php/acoustic-cosmology/" REL="nofollow">this</A>Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-24244078.post-3439974042024042992007-05-08T12:39:00.000+01:002007-05-08T12:39:00.000+01:00Hmm.

This post needs to make more use of the Pigeonhole Principle and distinguish countably infinite from other forms of infinity.Unknownhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/00342150873510427478noreply@blogger.com
