Universe with different laws of physics

Postby MrY » Mon Apr 03, 2017 10:36 pm UTC

Have you ever thought, tried, or heard of creating a universe with different physical laws?

- it own set of fundamental particles (or not)
- own forces
- ...
and perhaps:
- absolute time
- no inertia
- no light/matter/vacuum but different concepts...
- in 2D
- ...

I only know the trilogy of Orthogonal (that I've read) and the new book Dichronauts (Which I will read), both from author Greg Egan.
Also I heard about Celestial Matters book.

But I'm looking for a universe less like ours. Not a universe based on our with a little change, really another universe.

Do you know some of them? There is a list on the net that I did not find?

Thank you in advance!

My first instinct is to mention the Planiverse by A. K. Dewdney. This book focuses more on mechanics/biology than on particle physics, however.

It is also tempting to bring up cellular automata.
