Matter, energy, entropy/information are all manifestations of this 
spacetime. We have no idea how there (if there is a there) looks like.
QM nonlocality alone is something massively weird, and yet there is light
cone limit to signalling -- it makes no sense at all. 

Is there a cost function, allowing us to extrapolate about which properties
are cheap to compute in the metaverse? Whatever it is, if taken at face
value (digitalphysics.org/everything-l@), bits and change rate are damn 
cheap over there.
