What does it mean for the universe to be discrete?
There’s the smallest possible particle of electricity, the electron. There’s the smallest possible particle of light, the photon. In quantum theory, we have this idea of discreteness, that there is the smallest possible thing from which everything else is built.
Is reality continuous or discrete?
So to the extent that reality is accurately described by calculus, we can say (if we like) that reality is continuous. But in practice all our measurements are discrete, because measuring devices have a least count — the smallest unit of measurement that the device can resolve accurately.
Is the universe deterministic or probabilistic?
The quantum universe is fundamentally probabilistic, unlike the deterministic universe described by classical physics. Einstein believed that the universe and its laws must be strictly deterministic. He felt that there could be no role for probability or chance, in nature’s foundation.
