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. Continue reading Is Consciousness Inevitable ?
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. Continue reading Logical Depth
What is it that binds the Cosmos to unified principles and patterns of physical laws and constants ? Continue reading The Cosmological and Computational Ties that Bind
Can the Universe be said to be computational ? Algorithmic ? Can distantly-connected parts of a unified physical totality really manifest computation as we currently understand it ? Continue reading A Computational Universe ?
Misunderstanding the world in fundamental ways, as we generally do, we more often (and collectively) seek continuity and security in those things which are only very rarely able to provide them… Continue reading The Outer Limits of Knowledge
I imagine that part of the beauty of an equation in physics lies in the sense in which it serves as an algorithmic information compression of the phenomena, system or relationship it describes… Continue reading On Equations, Art and Information Compression
The revelations of quantum theory and relativistic cosmology would once have appeared to be outright lunacy… Continue reading Extrasensory Perfection
