The Universe is Like a Database

A database is similar to a spreadsheet but not as limited and with more powerful features. At the core, a database can represented as records/rows of data arranged in fields/columns. New data records/rows can be added to the database. Some databases allow the field/column format to change from record/row to record/row. Different forms can be created to look at a record in different ways and showing different fields. Different views can be created to show collections of records in different ways.

When the universe was created, the basic fundamentals of time and space offered some design structure, just as the rows/records and columns/fields do in databases. As the universe expands, new records of time and space are constantly being added. The design format of fields in each record is constantly changing allowing for many dimensions of time and space. This feature can explain the concept of parallel universes, and the complex dimensionality of string theory. Different universes are just different “views” of the same underlying data and different forms allow viewpoints from multiple dimensions.

And different kinds of life are like database forms or lenses that allow varying viewpoints to be experienced, even though the underlying data remains the same.
