Paul Davies talk as if the symmetries add nothing once you have all the asymmetries, so the laws are a result of information as well. I don’t see through this adequately myself as yet, though. John   From: Srinandan Dasmahapatra [mailto:s...@ecs.soton.ac.uk mailto:s...@ecs.soton.ac.uk

Re: boundary conditions, etc. I struggle to understand many/most of the posts on this list, and the references to boundary conditions, geometry and information leave me quite befuddled as well. Is it being claimed that geometry the same as information? That the requirement of predictions makes

I think I agree with Joseph Brenner here.  Analogue computing is linked to real processes, while living beings find ways of transducing information out of dynamical states. The graininess that information theories rely on to define measures may be directly linked to  physical limits in the
