The advances of physics in the last century have led us to understand the matter at the subatomic level, al- lowing us to predict with great accuracy its behavior and thus know in advance the relationships of the ele- ments when interacting with each other.
The mathematical algorithms that support these advances introduce us into their world, a world that reveals its accuracy, its perfection, a world that we are not creating, a world that we are discovering. Mathematics being the most accurate language to describe our environment, where everything that exists can be re- duced to algorithms, where the only gap is our limited knowledge of the subject.
Today we are immersed in a reality that is rapidly advancing towards digitalization, the BIG DATA reduces us to simple statistical data that define with great precision our behavior patterns and routines, blurring the in- dividual and minimizing the complexity of human behavior.
Simultaneous displacement is the first approach to the series simulations; Using computer algorithms to vi- sualize the possible encounters that would arise in the interaction of a certain group of people. The system computes its characteristic features and thus constructs the vector plane of interrelationships between them, generating a prediction of their behavior in a simulated space outside of time and space. A represen- tation of current reality, a reality of numbers that are computed at high speeds, generating more and more accurate information about who we are and what we will do.
