Actually, the Planckslength is the 'pixel' of the universe. The tiniest distance measurable (if you try to measure 1/10th of it, you will end up measuring 10 times its length, it is truly the smallest possible). Something on the scale of 1.6 * 10^-35 meters.

Here's a mental titty twister for you: What is the smallest unit of time? Time is a dimension, just like our three spatial ones. We believe that the string is the smallest unit in the 1st-3rd dimension, as you cannot get any smaller. But what about time? For example, when you heat up your oven, the temperature doesn't just smoothly flow from one temperature to the next. The heating elements actually exchange packets of energy in the form of heat known as Quanta (this discovery by Max Planck solved one of thermodynamics biggest problems of theoretical infinite heating). So if you were to look at a 1,000,000,000x zoomed in view of the heating graph of an oven, the temperature would be increasing in discrete steps, like a terraced hillside. So the question is, if we know that there is a size limit to every other type of energy and mass, then what is the smallest single unit of discrete time?

There is actually an complete existential theory that implies that the whole world is inside a super computer running us as an simulation using atoms content as computing object, a bit like OOP. I don't remember the name but it is indeed an interesting theory even though I do not think it is true.

Here is a comment I made as a reply to this content. www.funnyjunk.com/funny_pictures/4647325/Fucking+Lag/ I don't feel like changing it at all so I'm just copying and pasting.

Something I simply want to say that this has brought to mind. Imagine, in a couple hundred or maybe thousand years, if humanity isn't extinct, it is most likely we would have a new piece of technology that is best explained as a quantum computer. This computer would be capable of processing every human thought ever in about 2 seconds. One thing that this computer would be able to do is create a simulated world, where you can program everything about it, down to the chemical makeup of a single cell. In this simulation, all the creatures would act as you programmed them, which, to them, would be how they are supposed to act. However, eventually there would be glitches. It would take a long time, but eventually the computer would no longer be able to handle all of the information and things would start to happen that the creatures capable of intelligent thought would find abnormal. Now put this thought into your head. It is slightly possible that we live in a quantum computer simulation. To us it would seem completely real, because to us, it is. But to whoever owns the quantum computer this is all just a simulation that he made. The example used in the book I read this in was this. Two friends are talking to each other about the possibility of them living in a simulation. To prove his point, one friend makes a simulation universe in which two simulated people are having the exact same argument that he and his friend are having. Good job on reading through this big block of text.

Wrong. Planck units are the pixels of real life. Maybe you've heard the term "quantum leap"- that actually refers to discontinuity in motion and matter. And there is indeed a theory that we ARE in a simulation, and Planck units ARE our pixels. Since we can create simulations and things like artificial intelligences, there's no reason we couldn't be in one, or in an Inception-style situation. This is hinted at by the fact that we have things like universal pixellation and universal limits to things like speed and temperature. So, yeah. Everything you know is likely wrong.

Why the **** don't I realize things like that when I'm high? No, instead, I ask titillating questions such as "What if Australia was us?"

I at to be the one to say this but the realization guy would have been a better use of this

Actually that would be the String Theory.

>inb4 it hasn't been proven. It's a Theory

If thats the case then this game has a pretty ******* nice resolution
