Since we all exist in a virtual matter reality that is "rendered" by virtual engine, what kind of "system resouces" does it have? Are the system resources fixed? Can the resources/rendering-speed expand or grown as needed?

Thanks

It would appear that it has done so as required. Compare the world with a few groups of hunter/gatherers to the present 7+ billions and all of the new creations of science as computers, cell phones, the Internet, etc., all of which require more display capacity to render for us to play with.

Here's something that may relate, the effect of time dilation on moving objects relative to stationary objects. As time appears to slow for moving objects could this be a factor of a rendering lag? Perhaps a stationary object's rendering requirements are somewhat less relative to that of an object in motion.

I'm waiting for the books to arrive, and have listened to a number of lectures and interviews and not noticed any mention of time dilation, so I've wondered how this model would explain the effect.

At your service,

Kevin

Hi KVN,

Here is a link to a lecture Tom did that about halfway through the 12 videos maybe (so listen to them all in order if possible) is a reference to the lag you spoke of. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCBDDB997F69CDD74

These are the slides that go with that lecture I am pretty sure. http://www.my-big-toe.com/uploads/TMIKe ... idesV3.pdf

And here is a link to Tom's book to peek at while waiting for the "real" one. :) http://books.google.com/books?id=6To090 ... rs&f=false

I need to pick up a couple/few more copies myself.
Love to you and yours,
Bette
