Part 1 - Response
For my response, I decided to draw a picture based on an idea found in Jurgen Schmidhuber's paper A Computer Scientist's View of Life, the Universe, and Everything. The image takes the idea that different Universes can be computed concurrently by calculating one stelp at a time in each one. I visualized this as thin slices of universe wedged in between each other. An important statement in the paper that I found interesting was the idea that time was completely local to each Universe since time has no meaning during the periods that a specific Universe isn't being computed.
