Here’s an interesting article, by MIT’s Max Tegmark, on “The Mathematical Universe” —- an argument for an observer-independent objective reality that is “an abstract mathematical structure” (in the vein of the universe as bits/informational computation). The article also has an interesting discussion about the relationship between computable universe and physical reality.
There’s more: here’s Figure 1. (I am guessing that some readers might object with sociology being “derived” from “more fundamental” disciplines above it.)
