Updated: Humans and Their Universes

(wherever and whenever our destination is).
8) Another step might be to think of "... the grand design of the universe, a single theory
that explains everything" (words used by Stephen Hawking on the American version of
Amazon, when promoting his latest book “The Grand Design”) in a different way than
physicists who are presently working on science's holy grail of unification. Recalling the
manmade Genesis Planet in the 1982 movie "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan", we might
anticipate that the future will actually see a manmade planet (literally forming a planet is
merely an advancement of terraforming, where a planet is engineered to be Earth-like and
habitable). We might even free our minds from all restrictions and imagine science and
technology creating every planet in the universe. The universe’s underlying electronic
foundation (which makes our cosmos into a partially-complete unification, similar to 2
objects which appear billions of years or billions of light-years apart on a huge computer
screen actually being unified by the strings of ones and zeros making up the computer
code which is all in one small place) would make our cosmos into physics’ holy grail of a
complete unification if it enabled not only elimination of all distances in space and time, but
also elimination of distance between (and including) the different sides of objects and
particles. This last point requires the universe to not merely be a vast collection of the
countless photons, electrons and other quantum particles within it; but to be a unified
whole that has “particles” and “waves” built into its union of digital 1’s and 0’s (or its union
of qubits – quantum binary digits). If we use the example of CGH (computer generated
holography, which is reminiscent of the holographic simulation called the Holodeck in “Star
Trek: The Next Generation”), these "particles" and "waves" would either be elements in a
Touchable Hologram - demonstrated by Japanese researchers in August 2009 (search for
"Touchable Holography" in Google or You Tube) - or elements produced by the interaction
of electromagnetic and presently undiscovered gravitational waves, producing what we
know as mass (in September 2008, renowned British astrophysicist Professor Stephen
Hawking bet US$100 that the Large Hadron Collider would not find the Higgs boson, a
theoretical particle supposed to explain how other particles acquire mass) and forming
what we know as space-time. Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves, and
measurements on the Hulse-Taylor binary-star system resulted in Russell Hulse and Joe
Taylor being awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1993 for their work, which was the first
indirect evidence for gravitational waves. The feedback of the past and future universes
into the unified cosmos's electronic foundation would ensure that both past and future
could not be altered. (I'm disagreeing with Einstein's view of weights [mass] causing
indentations in a malleable “rubber sheet” called space-time, but the system I’m proposing
can yield exactly the same measurements as his and I think Einstein would welcome the
chance to consider a different interpretation.) (Our brains and minds are part of this
unification too, which must mean extrasensory perception and telekinetic independence
from technology are possible.)
9) Elimination of diseased matter and/or eliminating the distance in time between a patient
and recovery from any adverse medical condition – even death – would also be a valuable
way of restoring health. With time travel in an electronic universe, people who have long
since died could have their minds downloaded into clones of their bodies - a modification
of ideas published by robotics/artificial intelligence pioneer Hans Moravec, inventor/futurist
Ray Kurzweil and others - allowing them to “recover” from death (establishing colonies
