The 2016 Asimov Debate had a part where NGT was discussing whether or not if we could create the computer algorithm to compute all the fields, perturbations... of quantum physics and let it run, would the macro laws that we know fall out of the simulation? He mentioned the gas laws as an example.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know the mathematics of such a calculation are beyond comprehendible, but we double our computing power every two years so in a few decades, such a simulation might be possible.

Would you expect the laws of the macro world to emerge from a simulation of the quantum mechanical laws as we understand them right now?
