Warren Huelsnitz's curator insight, October 24, 2013 7:04 AM

A significant contribution in the debate over whether time is fundamental, or emergent. 

 

Emergent typically means like temperature or pressure, for example.  Temperature and pressure are undefined for a single particle.  It's only for distributions of many-particle systems that temperature or pressure makes sense.  Could it be that way for time?  Does an isolated particle not experience time; only systems of entangled particles?

Laborious Cretin's comment, March 31, 3:33 PM
Nice article though I would argue parts also. Mixed quantum state is more likely than computation. Decoherence, extreme time and space distortion, programing language, Ect... Not to get into what is it computing things. What is it encrypting the universe or just the black holes information? If so it would still look like gibberish. But I would say a mixed quantum states from one point of view is likely. As far as bottomless infinite. I prefer to see it as a virtual infinity with what black holes show. they have cutoff points and limits and do not keep growing after points and eating more matter. But that's just my perspective. Nice to see others looking at black holes in new ways.
