Professor 't Hooft has consistently being original. For several years now, he has developed an interpretation of microscopic motion.
One of his latest works can be read here.
I thought several years back, that thinking about Information, was a path to knowledge. Here I try to inform this idea with the recent work of 't Hooft.
Information is a set of marks for objects to move. It is similar to a Turing machine. 't Hooft now proposes a deterministic string cellular automaton, as the mathematical language to describe microscopic motion.
This is my take away from his paper.
First a little more on my own ideas, on cellular automata, and reality.
There is not much to it really, I imagine the Universe in the beginning, as the simplest thing we can conceive in our minds. This is a simplifying guide. If it turns out, that simple steps show up, as complex objects, say as beautiful and smart as my daughter Leza, after a sufficient long number of steps of the Turing machine, I made it!
I am not there yet; all I have accomplished so far, is to produce Leza in real life.
Oh yes, all I mean to achieve, is a good enough mathematical description of microscopic motion. I do not aspire to ever know, what the Universe is made of. That is for the good Lord up there, if he/she is there. I am just a simple mortal.
Paraphrasing professor 't Hooft: "For the time being, our reply to all those who come forward with Bells’ inequalities, will be: look at the mathematics, this is what our paper is about."
My philosophy for the Universe, is just a simplifying assumption, so I can think. Leave the rest to the good Lord.
Hypotheses non fingo.
My take away is that professor 't Hooft has done much more work, than I have. Nevertheless he is still very far from producing my beautiful daughter out of his equations.
