We have a pattern which, in this case, repeats itself every six steps. Exactly the same rule is applied at each time step, but the pattern is slightly complex. It is the interaction among the cellular automata which causes their states to evolve, and to evolve in a way that bears a relationship between past, present and future such that a pattern emerges. Cellular Automata theory considers each automaton as a "cell" surrounded by other cells. The simplicity of CA architecture gives rise to a vast complexity of interaction which, in turn, produces pleasing patterns of order as the scale increases.

Ed Fredkin Ed Fredkin — has had a distinguished career both in the commercial sector as well as academia. In the business world, Fredkin contributed mostly to the fields of computer science and artificial intelligence. He was noted for designing the first interrupt systems and was a pioneer in reversible computing concepts.

Therefore, laws of biology and physics ultimately derive from behavior of digital systems, specifically cellular automata a concept developed originally by computer pioneer John von Neumann. In this view, fundamental particles are ultimately just patterns of information changes, and since everything is composed of fundamental particles, everything is digital at its core. Like all digital philosophers, Fredkin believes that both time and space are granular. He carries the concept a bit further and argues that the universe itself is a computer.

In his view of digital physics, Fredkin identifies four laws: 2. The fundamental process of nature must be a computation-universal process 3. The state of any physical system must have a digital representation 4. The only kind of change is that caused by a digital informational process As he describes the nature of the universe, it is fully deterministic.

As such, there appears to be no room for consciousness.

Digital Philosophy

Edward Fredkin born is an American computer scientist and philosopher of information theory. This scientist article is a stub. You can help Wikiquote by expanding it. Quotes[ edit ] Cellular automata are now being used to model varied physical phenomena normally modelled by wave equations, fluid dynamics, Ising models, etc. We hypothesize that there will be found a single cellular automaton rule that models all of microscopic physics; and models it exactly.

Home Digital Philosophy DP is a new way of thinking about the fundamental workings of processes in nature. DP is an atomic theory carried to a logical extreme where all quantities in nature are finite and discrete. This means that, theoretically, any quantity can be represented exactly by an integer. Further, DP implies that nature harbors no infinities, infinitesimals, continuities, or locally determined random variables. This paper explores Digital Philosophy by examining the consequences of these premises.
