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!).
You intuit well that this need rewording. You are still talking like
Let me put it is this way. There is no space, there is no time, there
are no events. Only the arithmetical truth. They represent all
computations, including the one which emulates the Löbian numbers'
Physical reality/realities is deep relatively persistent first person
So it is not infinite number of computations which run in space-time,
it is space-time observations which emerges from arithmetical self-
Adding to my question: Could we equally say that an infinite number
of physical processes are running each and every instance of a

Good question, and I guess the answer is yes, especially if QM is bot
