Universe Has Future Emergent Topological Possiblities

Universe has future emergent topological possibilities.
If you accept the idea that some physical laws
are emergent, rather than elementary,
for complex interactions, and find places
gravitons don't exist, then topologies potentially
are emerging.
A dogmatic aethiest partical physicist might deny that Universe might make choices in which topologies to evolve, via the minds of bio-minds or cyborg minds. If light speed is constant, experience of time may vary. In this way, numbers are objectively affected by the shape of space.

Question for Paul: Do you think that number itself is interwoven with topology?
For example
As the phyical force 'invoked' by the type of object (rock, molecule, or atom) determines the time when the number of decimal places which determines the point of collision in going
.999 . . . percent of a distance between objects in imminent collision...
If a rock, it's an electrical collision between outer shells, right?
When colliding an photon or graviton, different force means it's a different number of "9"s to make
.999999 . . . equal 1 than if it were a rock.
Therefore topology has changed number, if subtley.

Quitting there. Just laugh if you must.
Thank you.
