Podcast: The Amateur Society – Information Theory And Digital Physics – 06.20.2017

DigitalPhysics

Following up on our series of technological discussions, tonight we will zoom all the way out to talk about what the digital age is potentially revealing about the structure of the universe. We have discussed digital physics in previous conversations, but now is an excellent time to revisit these ideas. Once we get this backdrop in place we will then come back in for a closer look at blockchain technologies and the cryptocurrency space.

What Does Digital Physics Have To Do With Hanjin Shipping?

No, fellow amateurs, I have not delved into a John Nash style madness a la ‘A Beautiful Mind’. However, I may in fact out myself as a quintessential nerd by admitting that when the movie came out and I was 13 I wept at the loss of intellectual genius portrayed in the film. I’d like to blame hormone imbalances due to puberty, but instead I’ll just own up to it. After all, I’m going to be writing about digital physics here, so we’re getting into some unorthodox, nerdy material in any case.

What is digital physics?

In brief, it is the theory that the fundamental component of our current reality is information. Not stuff – matter and mass – not energy – frequency and vibration – but information. Some have used this idea to argue that the entire universe is a computer simulation. I know what you’re thinking…
