The Physical Basis of Computability
May/June 2002 (vol. 4 no. 3)
pp. 27-30

Simulations work in practice because they exploit higher-level organizing principles in nature. Good code writing requires faithfulness to these principles and the discipline not to exceed their limits of validity. An important exception is the use of simulation to search for new kinds of emergence.

Index Terms:
ethics, simulation, good code writing
