Ask A Genius 283 – A-Atheist (5)

September 7, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: There’s information within consciousness, we experience it as the feeling of consciousness but that information should be character risible physically and mathematically; you should be able to model that information as interacting with itself in some kind of information space, which when applied to the brain it means you have the brain and it switches the hard way.

You have the kind  of conscious experience that we have of  the processes going on in the brain  and then you have the math or the  information space of the information  being processed in the brain and if you  then make the assumption, I guess that’s  a third ingredient that the universe is  itself a map of the information in a  vast information processing system or  consciousness, then you have to argue by  analogy that there has to be hardware to  support that the existence of that information. You can’t have the information in our consciousness without a brain being the hardware that contains and processes that information.

So, if the universe is an information space, then that implies hardware outside the universe that supports that information. It implies the existence of something outside the universe and in fact implies a very troublesome kind of hierarchy of some kind of hardware container for every information space so anything that exists, exists because of hardware outside the existence of that world. That’s troubling because it implies like a big infinity of containers but that’s the best I can do right now but it is theistic and implies powers beyond and outside the world we live in.
