**Building up spacetime with quantum entanglement II: It from BC-bit**

Mark Van Raamsdonk

(Submitted on 4 Sep 2018)

In this note, we describe how collections of arbitrary numbers of "BC-bits," distinct non-interacting quantum systems each consisting of a holographic boundary conformal field theory (BCFT), can be placed in multipartite entangled states in order to encode single connected bulk spacetimes that approximate geometries dual to holographic CFT states. The BC-bit version of a holographic CFT state corresponds to a geometry that can be made arbitrarily similar to the associated CFT-state geometry within a "causal diamond" region defined by points that are spacelike separated from the boundary time slice at which the state is defined. These holographic multi BC-bit states can be well-represented by tensor networks in which the individual tensors are associated with states of small numbers of BC-bits
