Many a Scientist Claims to Feel a Keen Sense of Beauty in Scientific Theories: “It is more important to have beauty in one’s equations than to have them fit experiment … because the discrepancy may be due to minor features … Continue reading

THREE STEPS TO DEEP LOGIC

- 1) Physics Itself The “Living State” and Shannon’s Information – 2) Logic Itself Shannon’s Information and Self-Reference Paradoxes – 3) Information Itself From the Nanoscale to the Microscopic Level — Developing a Physical Notion of Information Suitable to Describe … Continue reading

WHY DID I BECOME INTERESTED IN THAT QUESTION, AND WHY DID I APPROACH IT THROUGH INFORMATION THEORY?

1) Sir Roger Penrose, in his renowned book “The Emperor’s New Mind”, formulated the hypothesis that the nature of mathematical insight is non-algorithmic. He proved it through a classical logical argument (Gödel’s “incompleteness theorem” and the technique of reductio ad … Continue reading

The reconstructive social architecture I envision today has a revolutionary future–a nonhierarchical, nonlinear process structure that conceives and manifests a complex range of activities in spaces designed and programmed to provide access to the random. I call it “chaos architecture,” and it has provided a multidimensional blueprint to guide the three-dimensional design of the new… Continue reading

According to very recent researches on “teleportation” (A. Zeilinger, Innsbruck, Austria), a quantum state can be moved from one particle to another by exploiting the so-called “entanglement”. An “entangled state” is a kind of mysterious connection between particles so that … Continue reading

WHERE DOES ALL THAT LEAD US?

* aesthetic information is very difficult to measure, due to the personal and time-random dynamic nature of its “alphabet”. What about the perception that generates “aesthetic information”? Is it of non-algorithmic nature like perception of the external reality that generates … Continue reading
