If this is a code universe where did the code come from or possibly more fundamental what is the nature of the computer that runs it?
Step back for a second because these aren’t the more immediate or interesting questions for us as human beings. The first implication (kicker) is something like strong mentalism but with some objective bite. If you build a computer or suppose a brain is computing this wouldn’t be the case anymore than models of computers and computer screens built in minecraft with designs that seems almost like Charles Babbage’s analytical engine. .
More than this there is no paradox or disruption of a time continuum or any kind of real time or space or causal necessity that has to be dealt with. Every seeming action and interaction can be strongly mitigated to an extent almost without limit. There are gaps that are real between the tiniest minutia that can span an almost unlimited extent. Nothing must logically follow from anything else, at least not in our space. No energy constraints and no parsimony of natural law. This is not a nature, it may display seeming regularity but it can be as irregular as it likes in its higher nested driver realities. Stuff can spontaneously appear, and disappear and there is no issue. Stuff can be edited out. Stuff may play out like a video of an experiment in its own seemingly coherent but still unreal time but all the possible past configurations are still able to be simulated as are all the probable future projections. Its as flexible as an author telling a story in writing. The author is free to edit without much in the way of limitation.
Not only that but everything seems to be software like, it can be deleted but also reconstituted and unscramble and evolved. The concept of physical damage or of getting lost in time or space or memory does not apply.
As far as the secondary kicker it does seem that the digital physics model resolves all of the hard problems of physics, cosmology and consciousness. And as of October it seems to have been tested in an irrefutable way and is now the dominant model even if a lot of people haven’t caught up to this. Yep, no particles, no wavicals just bits now. Wheeler’s delayed choice “it from bit” experiment was finally done in October and the results don’t leave wiggle room. There may or may not follow some fussing about replication which would be short lived but experiment, theory and model coincide now in the best model that humanity has yet encountered by far with huge understatement.
Another implication is this system of experience could cycle and the intro points of various ideas and realizations could be constrained or managed, which could make tech a much more limited and pre-programmed proposition than some take it to be. Whatever you do especially self modification you seem to be self programming the system but within its preferred constraints.
