Somehow I tripped over a book that has a notion of time using “Spreadsheet mechanics”. Well, I like Excel so this intrigues me. Will read now.
“Principles of Discrete Time Mechanics
Professor George Jaroszkiewicz
Could time be discrete on some unimaginably small scale? Exploring the idea in depth, this unique introduction to discrete time mechanics systematically builds the theory up from scratch, beginning with the historical, physical and mathematical background to the chronon hypothesis. Covering classical and quantum discrete time mechanics, this book presents all the tools needed to formulate and develop applications of discrete time mechanics in a number of areas, including spreadsheet mechanics, classical and quantum register mechanics, and classical and quantum mechanics and field theories. A consistent emphasis on contextuality and the observer-system relationship is maintained throughout.”
