Quantum traffic jam of atoms could unlock origin of dark energy, physicists claim

I've figured it out...

Musk and others claim that it's all a huge computer simulation. Everything.

But modern compilers are optimized, so a clever compiler (i.e. God's) wouldn't bother calculating a result if it doesn't matter. Therefore, "If a tree falls in the forest..." etc. = silent. (Finally got that answered.)

But the same thing explains quantum physics. There's no need to compute if Schrödinger's Cat is dead or alive unless somebody can be bothered to look.

See?
