Adding to my question: Could we equally say that an infinite number of
physical processes are running each and every instance of a computation?
As I was reading an interesting paper, I ran across an equally
interesting quote from Richard Feynman:
‘It always bothers me that, according to the laws as we
understand them today, it takes a computing machine an inﬁnite number
of logical operations
to ﬁgure out what goes on in no matter how tiny a region of spaces,
and no matter how tiny
a region of time. How can all that be going on in that tiny space? Why
should it take an
inﬁnite amount of logic to ﬁgure out what one tiny piece of space/time
is going to do?’
Bruno's idea explains this by showing that an infinite number of
computations "run" though each and every event in space-time (please
correct my wording!). Would Feynman be happy with this answer?
