Too Long; Didn't Read

In an article on arXiv, Vitaly Vanchurin shows that the Universe can be described as a massive neural network. The most fundamental object in string theory is the superstring, and every particle in the Universe is a vibration of a superstring. The non-fundamentality of space-time is something weird, but not a new thing. Donald Hoffman is a big prophet of the theory of the “conscious Universe” In his theory, the most fundamental thing is the conscious agent, and space and time are only emergent properties of the conscious experience. In this model the neural network is not a “thinking machine”, it does not recognize patterns, etc, as we use them in computer technology, he is using it as a mathematical model of particles.
