Ask A Genius 172 – The ‘Real World’ (Part 2)

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

May 19, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: Also, in an IC universe, zero has flavors: 0.0, 0.00, 0.000, 0.0000, and so on.

Rick Rosner: Okay, there’s – what you mean is that if you’re looking at the nebulous set of all possible universes that can exist. There’s the zero information universe.

Jacobsen: Or the Empty Set.

Rosner: That’s the same as the zero information universe. it contains no space, no time, no matter. But because there are quantum fluctuations around that nothing. There are the smallest whiffs of somethingness, which you’re call “flavors.”

An IC Set Theory would be a set theory operating under quantum rules, which are a little fuzzy and more determinate the more or bigger your set is. The more information your set contains, and the entities or the sets. The optics that comprise the sets are themselves fuzzy.

So even zero is fuzzy because you can’t pin that fucker down.
