One of the more interesting theories that I have heard is that the entire Universe is one giant computer simulation. I know that this smacks of "The
Matrix" but heard this theory about 15 years before "The Matrix".
The idea is that everything that we can measure seems to have a limited resolution, quantums of energy, Planck's constant, electron charge, even the
speed of light. The nature of matter is such that it all comes down to packets of energy, like the bits in a computer program. Ultimately, all matter
is just bursts of energy moving around in probabilistic patterns.
The theory goes so far to suggest that the primary forces behave in pre-programmed ways.
