SIr,

I had no intention of changing the subject. If, indeed, you feel the basic definition of the universe includes only the space-time continuum, and particles appertaining thereto, then we have a perfect line in the sand which excludes the universe of individual creation, the universe of the non-material, the universe of thought itself, any possibility of elan vital except as a byproduct of matter, and a myriad of other interesting phenomena.

Honi soit qui mal y pense, I guess... no skin off my nose if we want to constrain the universe of discourse to things which discourse not. Seems a bit lame in itself, though. just to echo a crudity. But ya know what? I like you so well, just as you are, that I say Fuggit and withdraw my remarks.

Amos... "Gnu, old friend, if you draw a line in the sand, you can persuade yourself by staying carefully on one side thereof that the universe is made of silicon particles and there is no such thing as liquid."

Pretty lame. I extracate myself from any further discission on the subject. Why bother? If you diss the very basics of the definition of the universe which has been the very basis of many aspects of scientific endeavour and qualitative/quantitative research/theory and discussion by "changing the subject"... why bother?

On a more pertinent note, I wrote a great (I postulate) song about an Irish folk hero of note here in New Brunswick who died helping Irish immigrants get established in the fly infested bog country of my forefathers this eve. I shall set it to Rhan soon. It's far more important than quibbling about the universe.

If I don't put words on your screen how will I communicate with you?

SOMBER NEWS FROM POCATELLO

I may not be around here as much as in the past starting February 1, at least for a couple of weeks. My wife, Pat, will be having at least unilateral and possibly bilateral surgery for breast cancer that day.

In the meantime, she's going off to a quilt gathering in Indiana.

Rapp, do NOT put words in my screen; I meant that it takes a live soul to create energy and mass.

Gnu, old friend, if you draw a line in the sand, you can persuade yourself by staying carefully on one side thereof that the universe is made of silicon particles and there is no such thing as liquid.

Even a sand-shark would know better, but we of the hominid clan have a peculiar power of selective ignoral.

Little Hawk: What exactly are you using all those syllables to call BS on?

It takes a live soul to create energy and mass Amos?

Methinks the basic equation "The mass of the ass is equal to the square of the hair multiplied by the angle of the dangle." might be more to your liking.

You mean then that it takes mass and energy instead of energy and mass.

BUT!!!

Einstein's class E-mC2 demonstrates conclusively that mass and energy are two sides of the same coin -- and if you doubt it watch a fission weapon go off.

Translate? Who said anything about translating anything? Besides, it takes energy and mass to create a live soul and for that live soul to "translate"... such only adds to the verification of the treatment I have submitted.

Oh, fie, Gnu. It may take energy to rearrange particles, but only a live soul can translate that arrangement into information. The notion of information existing without a viewpoint is, to say the least, disingenuous and an absurd reduction to mechanism of that which, in the ultimate analysis cannot be mechanized.

Amos... "The total information is not a function of mass."

Empirically, given that the total of energy and mass in the universe is constant and that it takes energy to produce information, information in the universe is a function of energy and mass.

I am gnu and I support this treatment.

Well, that's fine, thanks for explaining, but there is an even more critical flaw in thenotion of It=mh2/1e79 and your accompanying explanation. One, I might add, which is revelatory in its nature.

The total information in the universe is not a function of mass.
Even if you take the totally wrong-headed approach of using an index of binary bits of data, which is wrong for different reasons, you will not measure the resultant if your algorithm is dependent on mass. First of all, for example, consider that the universe was limited to just one solar system, with one viabler planet, as a thought experiment. Although this would reduce the total mass by several orders of magnitude, it is immediately evident that given the same number life-units viewing the reduced array of mass, the same amount (approaching infinity) of information would be generated in a longer time. Reduce it to one particle in space and the T component also approaches infinity, but the curve of total information still approaches infinity.

But, contrariwise, reduce the number of life units to, say, ten, and leave the universe as it is otherwise, and you will find the curve of total possible information rising to a measurable peak and then falling away!

THerefore, it is clear the approach of a function depending on PLanck's k and mass is doomed to wander forever in the vale of unclarity, shedding only heat and no light.

She's good at holding bags. Also sealing them up with twist-ties. HIGHLY experienced at that.

But you see, Amos, what I'm trying to determine if there is a critical mass of books which will achieve a self-sustaining bibliographical chain reaction. Tempered by "censorship rods" (to prevent an information explosion) this could, eventually, produce all knowledge it is possible for humans to know (and quite a bit of pure bibliographic garbage, which we will have to find someplace to store -- at the moment, talk radio seems the best bet).

This is expressed best in the classic

It=mh2/1e79

That is to say, the total of information (I) in the Universee is equal to the mass of the Universe multiplied by Plank's Constant raised to the second power, divided by the the low end estimate of the mass of the Universe. Of course, this is the Special Theory of Informationity. I'll post the General Theory if you'd beg me to.

A man of sour soul and blood,
A man renowned for sowing FUD
In every place he steers his gaze
A cloud of FUD there soon does raise.
Confusion, doubt, fog, smoke and mud
Are stock in trade to Old Man Fud;
And clarity, his mortal foe,
Is never seen where the FUD-man goes.
Where innocence is, or certainty
His eye wreaks insecurity
And doubt to chill the bravest blood.
Thus is the life of Mister FUD.
A heavy man, and no man's brudder
Bold Raparee, the Master Fudder!
