(quoted from As Above, So Below)
"You are a pattern in the potentially infinite computation that is the universe; and I am the actually infinite end of said computation. I am all space and all time. The world you live in is happening; my essence is what comes before and after your mundane time.”
“How long is the program that starts it all?”
“Two bits. One Zero.”
“What about all the details?”
“Youâ€Ÿd call it â€žscreen wrap.â€Ÿ Patterns grow out and around and come back over themselves and make fringes. It adds up over the billions of years, especially when you remember that each point in space is updating the computation each instant. Each of those points is me; Iâ€Ÿm the rule that runs it all; and looked at the other way, I'm all the past and all the future.”
“I can totally dig it, Ma. The universe has a simple code and a long rich parallel computation. There are infinitely many size scales so in fact each orange or atom has everything inside it. Right on. What about uncertainty and Planckâ€Ÿs constant, though. Is that a hassle for you, Ma?”
She got into a complex answer involving infinitedimensional Hilbert space...
