Suspicions that the world might be some sort of a machine or
algorithm existing ``in the mind'' of some symbolic number cruncher
have lingered from antiquity. Although popular at times, the most
radical forms of this idea never reached mainstream. Modern
developments in physics and computer science have lent support to
the thesis, but empirical evidence is needed before it can begin to
replace our contemporary world view.
