I think this paper may interest many of you

Parts of it are fairly technical, however.

"Is the universe computable? If so, it may be much cheaper in terms of
information requirements to compute all computable universes instead of just
ours. I apply basic concepts of Kolmogorov complexity theory to the set of
possible universes, and chat about perceived and true randomness, life,
generalization, and learning in a given universe."

More comments later...
