Information theory, computationalism and the science of Platonia I am not a mathematician, so what I say here may be nonsense, but can't we say something more scientific about Platonia and monads than we have ? For example:
a) I think that the "physics" or science of Platonia must be information theory. b) I conceive of the One as a singularity which is analogous to the Big Bang singularity except that it is inverse to it. The Big Bang singularity is one in which matter pours out of intelligence. c) The Platonic singularity might be one in which meaningful information, instead of matter, pours out of intelligence. d) If we consider this Big Bang process as platonic, then creation begins as perfect forms and these become less perfect as they drop down in some sort of physical ontology. e) The infomation of each monad is contained in its perceptions, which I envision as data sets, each data set is a reflection of all of the other monadic data sets but from the point of view of that monad. This suggests that perhaps the information has a holographic format. Or the Bohmian implicit/explict dichotomy. f) The total amount of information in the universe has to be the sum of those in e). This is suggestive again of Bohm or holography. etc. etc. etc. Roger Clough, rclo...@verizon.net 11/2/2012 "Forever is a long time, especially near the end." -Woody Allen -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
