A New Computational Universe - Fredkin's SALT CA

Edward Fredkin believes that a final grand theory of everything would be computational - that the universe is a computer. Now we have an example of an extremely simple computational system - a Cellular Automata - that has particles that attract and repel, orbit and decay with a half-life law.

So glad to see Fredkin has never given up on this. His ideas about a discrete universe have always seemed much more compelling than a continuous fabric.
