Along the line of Jorge Luis Borges a blackboard covered in chalk contains
the library of Babel (everything) but no information. Similarly a white
board covered with ink also contains no information.
Interestingly, information is minimized or actually goes to zero when the
world is too large as the plenitude, or too small. Information is maximized
when the world is neither too large nor too small. We live in a Goldilock
Can we talk about knowledge or intelligence in a similar way? A rock is
completely stupid and ignorant. A human has some knowledge and some
intelligence (the Goldilocks case). God is said to be omniscient: infinitely
knowlegeable, infinitely intelligent. Doesn't this mean that God is the
equivalent of the blackboard covered in chalk, or the rock?
