As a side note, just a shower thought about the role of time in these models and in Bitcoin...

A "funny" thing about the Newtonian model is the reversibility of time in its equations (something that is the complete opposite of our intuition of the existence of an arrow of time).

Thermodynamics has reintroduced the idea of an arrow of time with its 2nd principle.

This was pushed even further by researchers like Prigogyne (works on dissipative structures).

On its side, Bitcoin is all about creating an "artificial" arrow of time.

This is achieved by continuously "injecting" a flow of energy into the system (a requirement for the apparition of dissipative structures).

@laurentmt reminds me of Nick Land's bitcoin and philosophy seminar, in which he also made a very similar point.
