[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: They’re all just little Tinker Toy parts. It is a handshake between atom A and atom B. There are 10^160th of these handshakes. How are you going to arrange them sensibly? Well, you can start grouping them by – you may notice that as you shuffle the contents of the bag – certain pairs of atoms. They may have exchanged 10^7th photons. You find that many handshakes between two particular atoms.

You find a bunch. Then you find a bunch of other interactions where they’ve had only 1 handshake in your bag between A and B. You set all of the sets of handshakes. You set all of the combinations of 10 million handshakes with each other into one pile. These are ones that are heavily related to each other or associated with each other. On top of that, you decide in our universe that the more interactions that two particular atoms have with each other, then the closer we’ll put them.

It minimizes something. It minimizes the distance that photons have to travel in the space that we’re constructing because the more associated things are then the closer we’ll put them together and that’s an efficiency. You can build something out of that association.
