The Bolshoi simulation

A virtual world?  The more complex the data base the more accurate one’s simulation is achieved. The point is though that you have to capture scientific processes through calorimeter examinations just as you do in the LHC. So these backdrops … Continue reading

Reality is Information?

ARE YOU LIVING IN A COMPUTER SIMULATION?BY NICK BOSTROM This paper argues that at least one of the following propositions is true: (1) the human species is very likely to go extinct before reaching a “posthuman” stage; (2) any posthuman … Continue reading

The Heart Connection

If the heart was free from the impurities of sin, and therefore lighter than the feather, then the dead person could enter the eternal afterlife. Many times we talk about the heart as a physical thing that exists within our … Continue reading

Mirror Neurons

Neuroscientific evidence suggests that one basic entry point into understanding others’ goals and feelings is the process of actively simulating in our own brain the actions we observe in others. This involves the firing of neurons that would be activated … Continue reading

Hypercomputation

Hypercomputation or super-Turing computation refers to models of computation that go beyond, or are incomparable to, Turing computability. This includes various hypothetical methods for the computation of non-Turing-computable functions, following super-recursive algorithms (see also supertask). The term “super-Turing computation” appeared … Continue reading

Digital Physics

In physics and cosmology, digital physics is a collection of theoretical perspectives based on the premise that the universe is, at heart, describable by information, and is therefore computable. Therefore, the universe can be conceived as either the output of … Continue reading

A Superset Universe?

How would you draw a Universe with all theories as being part of,  as a subset? Pictorial representations can be very useful in presenting information or assisting reasoning. Venn diagram is an example. Venn diagrams are used to represent classes … Continue reading
