Observation Changes Reality

Context: Observing The Universe Really Does Change The Outcome, And This Experiment Shows How There are aligned problems in logic here. If the description of a system (pick a card, any card: mathematics, material reality [a.k.a. physics], sentience, digital transformation, cybersecurity, culture, science, politics, language, etc.) is also a component element of that system, the […]

What is Entropy?

Well, among other things… Entropy is a measure of the “degrees of freedom” available to a system. Generally-speaking, the more components, sub-systems, artefacts, entities that compose a system – the more degrees of freedom that are available to that system. Because there are always more possible disordered system states than ordered ones (in the total […]

Yet another “Crisis in Cosmology”

More cosmological enigmas are upon us. The statement that “disparate observed properties of the Universe appear to be mutually inconsistent” is awesome. It is endlessly entertaining that we are all so constantly surprised to discover that these discontinuities and (apparent) logical enigmas arise. When they do emerge as artefacts of observation, it suggests that radical […]

A Boundless Cosmos

For a Universe to have spontaneously emerged from nothing may be an alternate view on the the same fact as that it has always existed. It is not the logic which fails so much as the implicit (or apparent) boundaries of our own minds.

Cosmological Algorithms

From an Algorithmic Information Theory and general systems perspective, matter can be conceived of as an optimally concise algorithmic compression of energy.

Consciousness as Emergent Quantum Phenomena ?

Is consciousness an emergent phenomena from the mysteriously unintelligible sub-microscopic world of quantum mechanics ? Yes, and no.

Is Consciousness Inevitable ?

The arrival of conscious observers in the Universe is not so much a miraculous surprise as a probabilistic inevitability hard-coded into the symmetries and logic of matter and physics.

Logical Depth

The temporal linearity and arrow of time upon which progressive iterations of information or energy-processing depend, or at least that the procedural operations of which must reflexively imply, finds itself as the template from which all extension and logical depth emanate.

Self-Gravitation
