We've proven that color is a subjective experience. So we know that the outside world does not look like anything at all. All the events happening in the outside world do not look like anything.
But space could be, in the same way, a representation of the actual universe, evolved over time in complex organisms .
What is the true nature of the universe? Is it just supposed to be abstract information?
If we, say, program sentient beings in a video game, they'll perceive a bunch of abstract information as space.
If there's no living thing to observe space, could we say that the universe is still a bunch of particles moving inside this stage called 'space'?
There's also the thing that all reference frames or 'point-of-views' in the universe are equivalent. This also kind-of pushes forward the idea that each reference frame is a stationary piece of information getting affected by the outside world, which is also a piece of information.
And the nature of this abstract information called 'universe' can't be such that the info is evolving as a function of time, because that would imply that time is absolute. Since time and space are interconnected, so if space is just a bunch of info, then time also has to be just laid out info or something like that.
If this is true, is it possible for information to exist if there's no such thing as space? I mean...where or how would the information exist?
