Stephen,

Bruno and I agree on this one, our usually imagined space is completely a construction of our minds. That is fundamental to my theory. I explain in detail how it happens in my new topic post "Another shot at how spacetime emerges from quantum computations" if anyone cares to read it...


So you do assume quantum mechanics?

Yes or no?

I still don't figure out what you are assuming.

Dear LizR,

But stop and think of the implications of what even Bruno is saying. Space is completely a construction of our minds. There is no 3,1 dimensional Riemannian manifold out there. We measure events and our minds put those together into tableaux that we communicate about and agree on, because our languages, like formal logical system, force the results to obey a set of implied rules. We formulate explanations, formulate models and look for rules that the models might obey. Hopefully we can make predictions and measure something...

I really really like Bruno's notion of an observer. If only we could see eye to eye on the definitions of some other concepts... Such as that Computation is an *action* or transformation, not a static "being".

Dear LizR,

Yeah, Zeno didn't know about calculus... I was speaking to the idea that "time moves". It doesn't, there is nothing to move. It is not an object that can be observed. We can measure measures of time: duration, sequence and energy. It is amazing how our minds can create "things" out of ideas that are not even true.

I agree that time doesn't move. And "motion in space-time" doesn't make sense either. Motion in space, however...

Dear Edgar,

Bingo! You are correct. All motion in space-time is an illusion. The ancient greeks figured that out already.

You mean Zeno? But he didn't know about the maths of infinity... :)

(Just an aside. You're correct of course that time doesn't move. Time is what is used to measure movement through space, after all, so what could the movement of time be measured in relation to?)
