We propose an abstract mathematical model of space and time within which to study agents, multi-agent systems and their environments. The model is unusual in three ways: an attempt is made to reduce the structure and behaviour of agents and their environment to the properties of the "matter" of which they are composed, a "block time" perspective is taken rather than a "past/present/future" perspective, and the emphasis is placed on discovering agents within the model, rather than on designingdoi:10.1007/3-540-45634-1_9 fatcat:6ddhkyjt75hwta7br6x536woki
