our universe is
an operating system, coded up over incalculable spans of time by some kind of
The cosmic operating system uses a command-line interface. It runs on something
teletype, with lots of noise and heat; punched-out bits flutter down into its
drifting stars. The demiurge sits at his teletype, pounding out one command
another, specifying the values of fundamental constants of physics:
universe -G 6.672e-11 -e 1.602e-19 -h 6.626e-34 -protonmass 1.673e-27....

key for an aeon or two, wondering what's going to happen; then down it
comes--and the WHACK
you hear is another Big Bang.
