If the laws of the universe can be reduced to binary code, say, on as ubatomic level, there might be no actual difference between the universe and the computer. Take 3D software for instance. In order for objects to movethrough space and time convincingly, the software needs to havethe laws of physics installed into it.

If the physics are the same, then maybe, as in the case of the atom bomb, computing hacked into the deep structure of the universe, and that’s what we peer into each day through screens.
