# EniScien comments on EniScien’s Shortform

• Or, if I haven’t written it down anywhere else, it occurred to me that since we live inside the Tegmark mathematical universe, in which case the universe is just a giant formula and the process of solving it step by step, each next part after the equal sign is the next moment in time, and the value of the expression itself, what is stored between the equal signs, is energy. The superposition is the subtraction inside the parentheses, which with each step adds another multiplier to both parts of the difference, and the different Everett branches are the same two halves of each difference, just with the parentheses open.

Well, now it’s not that I think this is wrong, but rather the opposite, too obvious, and therefore useless.

Besides, it can also be presented in another form, in terms of the intersection of computer science and quantum mechanics, the universe, or rather, all universes in mathematics, is a bit string, which diverges into Everett branches, in the first sign you have 2 branches for 0 and 1, in the second you already have 4, in the third 8 and so on, each branch is a standard particular bit string, with each branch division the amount of information in this string grows, that is, entropy grows, and this direction of entropy growth in each individual branch is time.

The law of conservation of energy, or even more broadly the law of conservation, common to all mathematics, is that at each step you have for 0 you have 1 and vice versa, each time you divide this into two bit options and each time you have the opposite option, so the total entropy of all mathematics is also in some way zero, if you look from inside it is infinite, but to write this down, you do not need any length formula, zero length is enough for you.

So from the inside mathematics is infinite, but from the outside it adds up to zero. That’s sort of the answer to the question “why is there something and not nothing?” and that answer is that “something” refers to a piece of “everything” and “everything” is what nothing looks like from the inside.

I came up with this myself, but later I also saw someone else’s formulation of this, that for every number on the mathematical plane there is an inverse number, so even though the math has infinite information, it adds up to zero in the end, hence the law of conservation of energy.

As far as I know, it is widely known among physicists, as opposed to ordinary people, that energy is a conditional quantity, and the energy of a part of a system can be the energy of the whole system, since energy can also be negative, can be as negative as you want, so what we think of as zero is only a convenient point of reference.
