OK, that makes sense. I'm also struck by the specific words "guided" and "draw"; I wouldn't apply any of those words to the process of humans intelligently making something so that it will do complicated things. Is this on purpose, i.e. you don't think humans, despite being "intelligences" in common parlance, can impart any intelligence to things? Or maybe they can but not in the same way that the cell has intelligence imparted to it?
Right. We can't impart intelligence as we're speaking of it here. We can reproduce, but that is just a biological means of passing intelligence on, or of intelligence passing itself along.
Mike Summers said:I have never observed information (its physics). How much does a thought weigh? What are it's dimensions?
Aeylyn said: I have observed flames but they don't weigh anything. I've never observed Pluto but I hear it weighs quite a bit. Weight isn't the end-all be-all of existence you knowI
You may have given yourself a satisisfactory answer but not me. Flames have physics. Moroevr you know to keep your distance from flames unless you wan to burn. Give me the physics of information or admit you know of none.
Well, there aren't any physics of information, anymore than there are physics of thought. Thoughts must have some form or energy or they wouldn't exist, but not in a physically measurable way.
Take space, for instance. Outer space, if you like. We know that space is there, yet we cannot measure it on a scale. Nothing can exist without nothing; space is what allows matter to be. It's the same with silence. Silence is perceived as a total lack of sound, yet silence is a conduit for sound, so it is there in a way we cannot physically measure.
The closest thing I could give you for physics of information is this. You have a thought. Immeasurable, or course. The thought is that you have an idea to draw a geometric pattern. Still can't measure it in any meaningful physical way. You take a piece of chalk and draw it on a chalkboard. Now the thought form has manifested into a physical and measurable thing in the physical world.
This in no way physics of information, it is simply a way to demonstrate a link between the physical and non-physical.
