 ¤ § ¤   Proclamation Of Digitology   ¤ § ¤

When talking about the universe and its nature, most scientific theories are perfectly valid, to the extent they explain.
However, none regress beyond the accepted, physically provable, and  manipulative.
DIGITOLOGY is a scientifically, socially—and even theologically—radical, yet perfectly logical, conceptualization of the universe.  In respect of the fundamental aspects involved, all key terms will be capitalized.
Digitology is defined as "a theoretical science and philosophy, positing the universe is a hierarchal structure of informational MOLECULES, or DIGITS, reducible down to the most fundamental equi-size and shaped Digit, the DYGON, an invertible 'on' or 'off' state of being".
While at first it may seem bizarre, when one seriously stops and thinks about it, it doesn't seem so bizarre, and, in fact, it seems matter-of-factly obvious.
Consider the physical world as we know it.  How many different things in the world do you think there are?  Millions?  Billions?
How about less than 200?  Since everything in this world is a combination of one or more of the atomic elements, everything can be ultimately reduced to them.  But now, what are all elements made of?  Electrons, protons and neutrons!  Thus even the elements can be reduced.  Therefore, all of the billions of different products, states, compounds, etc.—no matter how complicated or sophisticated—can be reduced to various combinations of the four prime "presences":  Electrons, protons, neutrons and space.  However, even they can be reduced, as an electron is simply a particle with a negative charge, a proton is a particle with a positive charge, and a neutron is a particle with no charge.  Thus the four can be reduced to three:  Particles, charges and space.
Digitology is simply a continuation of this dissection.  While the Dygon is the most primary state of being, it, in and of itself, is only the material, or "stuffing".  The most basic informational processing structure is the DIGITRON, consisting of a set number of Dygons.  In the computer sense, besides being the Molecular building block, the Digitron is the intelligentsia of all existence.
This quickly loses its apparent implausibility as one realizes intelligence is directly proportional to space (e.g., a computer is limited by the amount of accessible memory).  Looking at it another way, the more bricks you have, the more intricate the building you are designing can be.  This intricacy of memory is referred to as "definition".  For instance, a North American TV system has a 525 line picture definition.  One of the European "High Definition TV" systems, on the other hand, has a 1050 line definition, meaning the picture is twice as sharp and "defined".
Another example is the big bank clocks that light up dots to tell the time:  A clock with more dots will have better shaped numbers, meaning a higher definition.
The key to Digitology is definition.  This observer believes it would be impossible to find the actual definition—as is physically proving most other Digitological concepts, thus it is a theoretical science—for the same reason that, if a motion picture film was actually "alive", it would be impossible for the film's characters to "step out" of the film and examine its physical makeup, as the character is nothing more than a series of still pictures.
When we talk about Digital definition, we are talking about mind boggling proportions.  Let's say an electron was enlarged to the size of a grain of sand.  Now let's enlarge that electron to the size of the sun, and say it is composed solely of Digitrons, each Digitron being the size of a grain of sand!  Now take one of those Digitrons and enlarge it to the size of the sun, and say it is made up of Dygons, that are the size of a grain of sand!  When one considers these proportions, the plausibility and potentiality of Digitology begins to dawn:  When we look at the most sophisticated computer in the world—remembering that it is all reducible to electrons (which, as electricity, is the basis of all electronic information), protons, and neutrons—we can see how it is perfectly legitimate to say each Digitron is its own independent computer (as for the ones who note that it is people who make "earthly" computers, keep in mind that people themselves can be thought of as computers, and that even people are ultimately only specific arrangements of electrons, protons, and neutrons!).
Like computers, Digitrons may only use a small part of its structure for "output".  If, for example, a Digitron had a definition of, say, 1,000,000 Dygons, the output may only be allocated 73 Dygons:  An output with Dygons that are all "off" may constitute a Molecule—"building block"—of space, one with 12 "on" may be a "memory" Molecule, one with 20 "on" may be a proton Molecule, 25 may be a neutron, 29 may be an electron, and energy itself may be the result of all 73 Dygons being "on".
Thus you are left with an ample supply of combinations for all other knowns (antimatter, etc.) and unknowns (apparent physical impossibilities—the supernatural—as well as other paraphysical and parapsychological phenomena).
The vast majority of the Digitron's structure, however, is allocated to informational storage and processing (including a section for its own operating procedures).
Conceivably, Digitrons may very well know what each and every other Digitron is doing:  Say you have a hundred blocks.  One of the blocks is green, another is red, and a third is blue.  Now let's say each block is made up of a thousand smaller blocks.  With these n1umbers, each big block could have one hundred of the smaller blocks allocated to storing the conditional state of each of the other big blocks:  The one allocated to the green block would be green, the red one red, and the blue one would be blue.
The greater the number of smaller blocks per big block (the higher the definition), the less percentage of space used.  The same holds true for Digitrons.  However, since a Digitron's output would involve many Dygons, each Digitron would need an adequate allocation per Digitron:  In our above, 73 Dygon allocation, each Digitron would need a storage allocation equal to 73 times the number of Digitrons in existence—and since the number of Digitrons is phenomenal, you can see where the Digitron's definition needs to be even more phenomenal.
With all this activity, the question of time surfaces.  While it may seem impossible for all this processing to occur without being aware of it, it can, in fact, take as long as it wants.
Similar to our motion picture example, take a cartoon as a clearer example:  As each frame of the cartoon is created individually by a cartoonist, if the artist stopped painting in the middle of a frame, and didn't return to it for three months, the completed cartoon wouldn't know the difference.  Thus a DUT (Digital Unit of Time) is needed.  A Dut is the amount of time needed for a Dygon to invert its "on" or "off" state of being:  The quantitatively undefined, smallest unit of time.  Say the shortest known, scientifically calculated unit of time is a "working time instant" (WTI).  A WTI could be as short as a Dut, or as long as 500 billion earth years, since any tangible change—such as aging, or any other atomic movement—could only increment once per WTI.
There is one more radical element of Digitology, that can be easily overlooked:  Since the complete universe, or DIGITARIUM, is omnipresently composed of Dygons, and that Dygons are the most elementary units of information (that are only capable of inverting), it follows that they are stationary, thus, nothing in the Digitarium actually moves, it only APPEARS to move.  It is quite similar to a video screen (the "output") on a computer:  When one uses a word processor and moves a letter over three spaces, the "physical" letter itself (the light) doesn't move, only its order of information.  In fact, when you see a letter "sitting still" on the screen, the physical light itself only exists for a 60th of a second, at which time a new light with the exact same order of information replaces it—again and again, until the order of information is directed to change.  Thus, the Digitarium is essentially a three dimensional TV screen.  One could even use a word processing program as an analogy of a hierarchical structure of information, and, therefore, Digitology itself:  The whole program itself is the outermost Digit.  Regression back down one path would descend in the following manner:  With all this understood, one can visualize the physical and psychical (meaning human nature, "life", theology, etc.) ramifications presented with the concepts of Digitology, which could revolutionize man's interpretation and ultimate understanding of all existence.
