[Beginning of recorded material]
Rick Rosner: The clumping is — if you have a library of interactions or the set of all interactions in your system, space and time are ways of orienting those handshakes between particles in such a way that the total aggregate distance is minimized. In the space that’s established, particles that do a lot of interacting with each other are going to be closer to each other. It minimizes the distance of these interactions when they’re a lot of them.
If those particles are interactions a lot, you put them close together to minimize the distance in the space the interactions are creating, and minimizes the time the photons have to travel. A reasonable arrangement of space minimizes space-time, basically. It puts things closely associated with each other close to each other in space and time.
Scott Douglas Jacobsen: So the mass in a given cubic volume of space can imply the amount of information or information processing potential. The greater the mass in a particular volume, then the greater probability for high levels of information processing; the lower the mass in a particular volume, then the lower the probability for high levels of information processing.
RR: I guess so. Another way of looking at it. There is no essential difference between two atoms a millimeter apart exchanging a photon and two atoms that are 10 billion light years apart exchanging a photon. There are huge differences, but there are some essential similarities. For one, in both instances, the photon experiences zero time in transit between the atoms.
RR: because photons travel at the speed of light. Something travelling at the speed of light doesn’t experience space or time. It sees space as infinitely compacted and time as infinitely dilated. If a photon were able to experience the world, it would leave one atom and arrive at another atom a blink of nothingness. It wouldn’t be traversing any space or any time.
SDJ: But relative to space, the time it takes for exchange for photon contact with whatever the thing is proportional to the relevance of the information. So the farther away something is in the universe, then the less relevant something is, mutually.
RR: Say you’ve got a bag that has 10¹⁴⁰thphoton exchanges. You’re trying to arrange those things in an efficient way. They’re all the same. They are a photon leaving one atom and hitting another atom. The bag is your universe, even 10¹⁶⁰thinteractions. You build a universe. Build a universe that makes sense. All of these interactions are basically the same.
