Wouldn't it be wild if this led to the realization that the universe is just a big blob of computronium and that we just happen to be some emergent behavior in it?
All that talk about the Universe being computable is just the old awe about physics being explainable. Different words, but the same meaning. None of that implies a computer simulation.
That's essentially what Max Tegmark keeps talking about. Of course, this is all very speculative at the moment, but folks at Tegmark's level are starting to say that our current understanding seems to point in that direction.
It's still quite possible that someone will come along and show that reality is quite different after all. Things feel (and are) quite unfinished at the moment; this is very different from 19th century physics, when we thought we had reached the end of science.
To 'pew pew' is my default emergent behavior.
As well as the prior article: "CHAPTER 1: ENTANGLED WORMHOLES Wormholes Untangle a Black Hole Paradox" https://www.quantamagazine.org/20150424-wormholes-entangleme...
Though not applicable for our spacetime, is still a compelling motivation for more research. We can now compute chess, go, deep learning. Next up tensor network modelling.

Could this also be rephrased as "separation is illusion" ?
