Posted by: Enexseenge
In nature what is it that holds the rules?
Is it an intimate property within the physicality of the natural phenomena that "holds" the rules in its parametric physicality, parameters that define it's unique structure in terms of a unique rule?
Or do the rules exist in some strange abstract realm and that we simply observe nature behaving like these rules, representing the rules in it‘s functionality...??
Even in a Computer simulated CA…
The rule is defined beforehand, and then the cells undergo the transformation..
Where is the rule actually defined? Is it defined in a strange abstract domain and that the CA simply behaves like the rule, the rule transends upon the cells?
Or is the rule only existent within a live evolving CA system, bound to the “physicality” of the individual cells and their states...?
Where are the rules physically?
