Abstract

Is there a short and fast program that can compute the precise history of our universe, including all seemingly random but possibly actually deterministic and pseudo-random quantum fluctuations? There is no physical evidence against this possibility. So let us start searching! We already know a short program that computes all constructively computable universes in parallel, each in the asymptotically fastest way. Assuming ours is computed by this optimal method, we can predict that it is among the fastest compatible with our existence. This yields testable predictions.
