What would we be studying if our world was a software ?04 Feb 2010
Physics is just reverse-engineering the world
I once heard or read that somewhere and that make me smile.
Today I wondered if the same analogy could be applied to the other subjects we are teached in school.
If Physics is reverse-engineering, then Mathematics is using the World framework and developping new applications and unit testing with it.
Biology would be micro-debugging and desassambling it, maybe even re-compiling it.
History would be nothing more than writing and parsing the logs.
Geography would be mapping the whole network.
French (or English, or whatever your first language is) would be reading and learning the doc and man pages. And of course, foreign languages would mean learning new programming languages.
Sports would be the fun part, where you are playing you video games.
Did I forgot something ?
