A consequence of 10d supersymmetric string theory is the existence of a universal subspace called the Calabi-Yau Compact Manifold (CYCM) which is composed of a 3D array of discrete units of 6d compactified space. The recent astronomical evidence that Sommerfeld's fine-structure constant varies slightly across the visible universe (from north to south in an Earth perspective) suggests that the flux windings in the discrete 10^-30 cm diameter CYCM units may vary similarly across the universe. String theorists estimate that the flux has 10 quantum states while winding through the 500 or so holes in each CYCM unit, so that there are about 10^500 possible windings, the so-called string landscape. Such a large number is more than enough possible windings to fill many good size universes with distinct CYCM units. If the discrete and distinct CYCM units are also numerable, they may have the properties of a Peano arithmetic and possibly manifest an invisible emergent collective cosmic consciousness that permeates the entire universe, separate from human physical consciousness.
