I hope that if there are errors, they are with my axioms and not my logic but the statements I make and sources I reference should be taken with a pinch of salt. I have recently been reading about the entropic theory of gravity and the idea that gravity could be an emergent property is fascinating! I have thought for a long time, talking about it at school, that there might be some fundamental logical underlying physics. What I mean by that is that if you look deep enough into maths you can derive the laws of physics. That the constants have to be that way because they are derived from mathematical laws rather than observation. This is my version of the “ Mathematical Universe Hypothesis ”. That the universe isn’t just described by mathematics it is mathematics. I don’t believe
