Ask A Genius 285 – A-Atheist (7)

September 9, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: We’re in the universe; good luck getting to the hardware that contains the information that the universe consists of and even more good luck as it’ll be even tougher to get to the container of that information, the hardware world that contains our information world.

At some point it just all kind of becomes irrelevant to the point of not being even arguable for because it’s so remote and inaccessible from the world we live in. There’s also the possibility that the idea that it could be wrong that the universe consists of information, it seems unlikely to me because information is pretty much the simplest thing that can be.

When you define information as the choice or the specific value that exists in a system of where you have a finite number of choices, in other words in a system where something can be on or off or can have the value of zero or one.
