Physics in Discrete Spaces: On Space-Time Organization


We see the whole universe as a collection of very simple binary physical systems. With this assumption, we put forward a detailed model of discrete spaces. Our own universe with its four dimensions, shared between one time-like dimension and three space-like dimensions, as well as the Minkowski metrics, are emerging properties of the model.
