How can a particle be sure of what a nearby particle is doing? How can I know for sure that this is the position that I will inhabit, if it's very actions will determine and be determined by those of a million particles around it, *who are equally unsure of what state they are in*?

The answer is the blockchain.

This blockchain however is a little different than the one you and I use to record bitcoin transactions. Instead, this is a fourth dimensional blockchain (let's call it a spacechain) that slowly builds itself as it winds across a temporal space. It becomes a little more complicated when you incorporate relativity: different parts of the 'spacechain' are growing at different rates due to individuals travelling through time at different speeds, but the idea is the same.

When a particle is trying to decide what position to take, it assesses the condition of particle around it, and tries to solve for a solution that fits the current 'quantum hash' . I'll refer to a local quantum hash as the current formula which defines all mathematical possibilities for a particle. However, those possibilities change like the tides of an ocean as other particles change around it. It's only when other particles force a particular particle to choose a state that a 'solution' is found in the space chain. The space chain then grows according to the information that is added to it by these interactions.

All particles in the universe are simultaneously trying to solve for each other in a sort of frenzied, quantum game-theory way. Whenever there is a disagreement about which state a particular set of particles should take, just like the block chain, it is brute force which determines the outcome. It's interesting, and what we haven't realized yet, is that concepts such a 51% attack are also possible on the space chain, though impractical with today's technology.

It's also important that we keep in mind that though our consciousness lends us to believe that we are observers in this space chain, we are actually part of it, which handcuffs us in some ways but it is also quite extraordinary.

Essentially, when the block chain of bitcoin grows large enough, and with a few additional tweaks, a new type of artificial intelligence will emerge. We are the end result proof of that inevitability. When the space chain was let grow large enough and after enough interactions, the space chain began to observe itself and begin to consider how to best change itself.

If this occurred in the blockchain, we would be surely frightened. Imagine that the entire universe is a digital crypto currency for a higher intelligence, and suddenly it wants to reorganize itself according to... Itself.

A rogue chunk like this could quickly corrupt the rest of the bulk if left unchecked, just as we would fret if (in a world that uses bitcoin as a primary store of value) the block chain suddenly decided to reorganize itself from within.

The future is a strange and scary place.

which is to say monopoly with a ton of incomprehensible economics rules that nobody really understands and a board that only accepts you've passed go if you have four confirmations

also an incredibly volatile stock market that tends to crash whenever anyone sells
