The Matrix revisited: Is the Universe a giant computer?


A nobel prize winner Physicist has recently published a theory (which has problems) that basically concludes Einstein's views that Nature or "God does NOT play dice" when it comes to quantum mechanics ie quantum mechanics is deterministic rather than probabilistic and there is a hidden mechanism that determines if a state is in A or B for eg rather than say 50% chance for state A and 50% chance for state B. Without getting into the physics, it says

"The universe is a cellular automaton in which reality is simply the read out of a giant, fantasticallycomplex computing machine"

You bloody hope that this computer doesn't run on Windows Vista!!! hehe ;-)))
