The researchers working with Microsoft published a preprint paper to arXiv titled “The Autodidactic Universe,” ( https://arxiv.org/pdf/2104.03902.pdf. ) “
according to The Next Web. It describes our universe as an algorithm that’s continuously learning about itself.
Like humans, the universe itself observes and learns about its own laws and structures — and changes as a result.
The paper’s authors also dive into the idea that memes are a great example of how the universe might not just be learning out of its own survival — but also purely because it just wants to learn.
