According to Max Tegmark, a Swedish-American MIT cosmologist, “only Godel-complete (fully decidable) mathematical structures have physical existence” http://arxiv.org/pdf/0704.0646v2.pdf Here is his abstract:

I explore physics implications of the External Reality Hypothesis (ERH) that there exists an external physical reality completely independent of us humans. I argue that with a suﬃciently broad deﬁnition of mathematics, it implies the Mathematical Universe Hypothesis (MUH) that our physical world is an abstract mathematical structure. I discuss various implications of the ERH and MUH, ranging from standard physics topics like symmetries, irreducible representations, units, free parameters, randomness and initial conditions to broader issues like consciousness, parallel universes and G¨odel incompleteness. I hypothesize that only computable and decidable (in G¨odel’s sense) structures exist, which alleviates the cosmological measure problem and may help explain why our physical laws appear so simple. I also comment on the intimate relation between mathematical structures, computations, simulations and physical systems. Richard Ruquist: This is not Bruno's comp because of the assumption of ERH. My paper http://vixra.org/pdf/1303.0194v1.pdf, based on Tegmark's Hypotheses, conjectures that only a holographic Metaverse containing many holographic Universes, contains a sufficient number of bits for computations in it to be effectively complete and decidable to compute matter and energy; whereas the computations in any Universe having a relatively limited number of bits for computation (ie., ~10^122) are relatively incomplete, and that incompleteness hypothetically results in emergent consciousness. BTW, Ruquist is a Swedish-American name, having been anglicized on Ellis Island.
