I had a question about the quote below of Edgar's. In what sense of 'compute' do you believe that something computes reality? Also, I'm wondering if Laplace's demon is relevant.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laplace%27s_demon According to the article, we have: In 2008, David Wolpert<http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=David_Wolpert&action=edit&redlink=1> used Cantor diagonalization<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cantor_diagonalization> to disprove Laplace's demon. He did this by assuming that the demon is a computational device and showing that no two such devices can completely predict each other.<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laplace%27s_demon#cite_note-5>  <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laplace%27s_demon#cite_note-6> If the demon were not contained within and computed by the universe, any accurate simulation of the universe would be indistinguishable from the universe to an internal observer, and the argument remains distinct from what is observable.
