My name is Jevgenij and I'm from Germany. (Sorry for maybe bad English? :D)
I'm interested in some things...
1) What kind of information can you receive when you look at the Member from the fireside chat video. In your book, you could see some Information from a photo. Could you get any Information from each member of the Fireside Chat right now?
2) How would you describe Gravity from your point of view (I'm reading the first book right now... maybe you will answer my question in the books)
3) I have some ideas about how the Big Computer could be designed and I would like to know how do you think about this.
There are 2 possibilities how this Reality could be computed: digital and non-digital.
Digital: This reality is like a world of warcraft game as you like to describe: There is an external PC and this PC computes some stuff, that actually do not exist. Consciousness put a „VR glasses“ on and experience this game as its own reality.
Non-Digital: There is no external Computer that computes a bunch of ones and zeros. When digital reality is like a game on a CD, the non-digital reality is like … a lego set of Harry Potter, for instance. You go and buy Lego, go home, build it and play with it. Lego is build from the same matter as our world, it's hard, you can touch it, and you can manipulate it. It’s like a World of warcraft game, but it has existence in our world. Well how does it work? I would say, you putt a tide set of rules to a set of small pieces of energy. Why small? Because it's easier to have the control and the ruleset can be „simple“. "Compute little things, that hold big things together.“ By putting rules into small pieces of energy you program them so they can do some simple reactions. For every kind of input, there is a code, that provides the reaction to it. The reaction is saved, by changing the State of the piece of energy… like it changes his Shape. So every piece of energy acts like a micro processor. If that true, it means, there is no external Computer, but the reality itself is the computer. Our mater is made of tiny micro processors, that we call particles.
So when I where the big consciousness and would have the ambition to build some virtual realities, I would have a choice to build Computers, that create digital realities or to build one big Area where energy acts like billions of billions micro processors.
What do you think of this two different kinds? Is there maybe a third one, that I do not see yet?
If the non-digital way is how our Reality is computed, how do you describe the Gravity from that point of view?
Thank you very much for reading, I hope you can answer this Questions in the chat :)
