From a comment by Human445:
//Initialize
present = startOfUniverse

//main loop
while (present < endOfUniverse){
simulateAllUniverseStuff(present)
present+=planckTime
}
Whether or not the information from Craig Hogan's elegant laser experiment turns out to be of any immediate practical use, it is rather nice to know that experiments sophisticated enough to determine whether the fabric of the universe is actually quantised and holographic (loosely reminiscent of Michelson and Morley's accidental disproving of the ether) do not have to impose any risk on the world as a whole. It seems that scientific knowledge can indeed move forward without elbowing all other considerations out of the way.

(And by research standards, it was cheap too!)
