Hi Jesse:

`In FCC ABC layering the distance between the centers of any two`

`adjacent regions is always the same.`

`Now if we get to motion the question is whether or not the model`

`allows motion. In a discrete state evolving universe there is no`

`motion while a universe is in a particular state and there is no`

`continuous transition to the next state but rather a wink out and a wink in.`

The postulates of special relativity:

`"Postulate 1: (Principle of Relativity) The laws of nature are the`

`same in all inertial frames.`

`Postulate 2: (Constancy of the Velocity of Light) The speed of`

`light in empty space is an`

`absolute constant of nature and is independent`

`of the motion of the emitting body.`

are satisfied if there is no motion so the model would have Lorentz-symmetry. Hal Ruhl At 08:51 PM 10/10/2005, you wrote:

A discrete lattice structure would also violate Lorentz-symmetry,since the mimimum distance would look different in differentreference frames, and there would be one preferred frame where thedistance was maximized.Jesse
