More and more, physics and even biology is becoming an information science as well as technology. We think of information as something ethereal, as incidental and even imaginary. Well, there is no such thing as fictional information. All information is energy or it can’t be present, can’t take form, and all energy is matter of a sort viewed from the right reference point.
Learning, observation, the constant stream of information intake, is how you exist. The information you learn and synthesize is you. Every thing you come into contact with, how you experience each and every little thing as the individual you are, is a creative process. You are assembling you. Creating yourself from the information around you, from your experience.
“Operationally, God is beginning to resemble not a ruler but the last fading smile of a cosmic Cheshire cat.” Julian Huxley
