59:46Recommendation for names - instead of stored entities you could have stasis_entity and stasis_region; for the high frequency, you would keep the sim_region and sim_entity.

1:00:29Since we know that an entity's speed is bounded, couldn't we calculate a sim_region with bounds such that no entity can move outside of it during the frame? That way anything that the entity could collide with would be pulled into the sim_region?
