The world is described as a relativistic quantum neural net with a quantum condensation akin to superconductivity. The sole dynamical variable is an operator representing immediate causal connection. The net enjoys a quantum principle of equivalence implying local LorentzSL(2,C) invariance and causality. The past-future asymmetry of its cell is similar to that of the neutrino. A net phase transition is expected at temperatures on the order of theW mass rather than the Planck mass, and near gravitational singularities.
