In comp (and many TOEs) time is emergent. To take a parallel example that should be close to your heart, suppose you're an AI living in the matrix and it's simulating reality for you. You aren't aware of this but believe yourself to be say a human writer who is participating in an online discussion. Suppose it takes a million years to simulate one second of your experience. How would you know? You can only compare your experience of time with in-matrix clocks, which all run at the speed you'd expect.
It's the same for any theory which tries to compute reality. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
