Perhaps mathematics, which is digital, is incapable of precise simulation of
reality, which is not digital.

Subject: Omega Point theory and time quanta

There has been some discussion in recent posts about Tipler's Omega Point
theory, which postulates that an infinite amount of subjective time can be
squeezed into the last few moments of a collapsing universe. This is
straightforward mathematically using infinite series, but if time is
quantised, it would not work in reality; and it seems to be widely accepted
that time is indeed quantised. Is there a way around this difficulty?
