Matter, Energy and Information
Recently I had an atheistic nut-job who goes by Negative Entropy come here and baldy declare that "energy flow can explain information content".
Yet after many posts NE never did support his claim. He did not link to any information scientists, nor information theorist, nor information technologist (like me) to support his claim. What did he do? Just kept repeating it. That's it.
No one has ever demonstrated that energy flow can explain information content. As far as I know Negative Entropy is the only person making such a claim. So that would be a negative point against him.
He also claims that E=MC^2 says that energy is matter, matter is energy. That is nonsense. The equation tells us the equivalence- this amount of mass is equivalent to this amount of energy. It does not say that energy and matter are the same thing. Matter can be destroyed, energy cannot be destroyed. But that is besides the point.
Norbert Weiner- who is an authority on information said:
Information is information, neither matter nor energy
How does Negative Entropy respond? Like all intellectual cowards respond- by a bald declaration that Norbert Weiner is wrong- a bald declaration.
For all of his bluster negative entropy has failed to support any of his claims and then runs away crying that I am unable to be educated.
The truth is that Negative Entropy was unable to make his point. And until he provides valid references to support his claim he never will.
Matter and enery are information carriers only - that is the relationship, well that and neither would exist without information...
Everything in the universe is made up of essentially 2 things: matter and energy.- add information to that short list.
