Liz,

No, there is not a single universal processor, there is a single processor CYCLE. All information states are effectively their own processors, so the computational universe consists of myriads of processors, as many as there are information states (more or less). But all these myriads of processors all cycle their computations together in the same present moment, i.e. in the SAME computational space.

What is it?


Saying there is a universal present moment is effectively the same as saying there is a single computational space in which all the computations of the universe occur.

Yes, that exists, but out of time and space. that exists in a tiny part of the arithmetical reality.




If all computations occur in a single universal computational space there has to be a single universal present moment in that computational space that provides the happening for those computations to occur.

Occurrence is a relative notion. Something occur to universal numbers x relatively to others universal numbers y.

Stephen,

There is no "single observer that can take in all events...". I never said that and don't believe it.

However there has to be a single universal processor cycling for a computational universe to work. That single universal processor cycle is the present moment P-time. All computations occur simultaneously as these cycles occur. All individual observers, clock times etc. occur and are computed within this actual extant presence of the computational space of reality.

There has to be a single processor computing the state of the universe?!

I know that's possible in principle, what with the C-T thesis and all that, but it's a bit of a limitation to put on your ideas. (Or maybe it has 10^80 cores? :-)
