How to measure the dimensionality of the universe
The graphs of Wolfram Physics are going to have to be three-dimensional to be a true representation of our universe. But how can we tell whether they're three-dimensional? How would we measure the dimensionality of our own universe?

Where's the computer that runs the universe?
I've been running simulations of our universe on my low-powered laptop. If Stephen Wolfram's right and the real universe evolves computationally in the same way as these simulated universes, where's the computer that runs the universe?

The expanse: dimension, separation & explosion
If it's to be a viable theory of physics, Wolfram Physics has to accurately model space as we know it, including these fundamental characteristics: position, distance, dimension, separation & explosion. Let's see how it measures up.

What is space? the where and the how far
What does our universe look like? Let's start with space. By considering the most fundamental characteristics of space, we can see how the nodes, edges, graphs & rules of Wolfram Physics might accurately represent the world as we know it.

What is physics? the how and the why
I pick up a stone. I hold it in my hand, my palm over the stone, my fingers curled underneath. I let go. The stone falls. Why? This one-word question takes us to the heart of what physics is. And, perhaps more importantly, what physics isn't.

Different rules, different universes
What different rules could be applied to our universe? What different universes would arise from these rules? Here's an exploration of different rules, different universes.

Nodes, edges, graphs & rules: the basic concepts of Wolfram Physics
According to Wolfram Physics, the universe is a network of points and lines. Here's my simple explanation of nodes, edges and graphs, along with rules, which determine how the universe evolves.

Why I'm writing about Wolfram Physics
If physics and mathematics have always eluded you, well, me too. Here's why I'm writing about Wolfram Physics, despite having lost interest in physics in 1988 and never truly got to grips with mathematics.
