Constructor theory

Constructor theory

Constructor theory expresses physical laws exclusively in terms of what physical transformations, or tasks, are possible versus which are impossible.

Constructor theory is a proposal for a new mode of explanation in fundamental physics, first sketched out by David Deutsch, a quantum physicist at the University of Oxford, in 2012. By allowing such counterfactual statements into fundamental physics, it allows new physical laws to be expressed, for instance those of the constructor theory of information.
