[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: Another thing is where the information might be in the universe. I tried to systematize it. I see three types of information. Although, this is not an inclusive list. This is what sloppily comes to mind. Information based on history. That’s kind of past information. I don’t know if that is its own category because that’s macro stuff. Particles to a great extent themselves do not have a history or a capacity for history.

Looking at protons or electrons in isolation, you can assume certain things about their history. But electrons look all the same. To a great extent, protons look the same, but you can look at their guts. You can look at their fleeting internal configurations, probably detect them. But not much history, the history they do have is fleeting. Any history you find in the universe is a reflection of what’s happened and is accessible in the present will be at the particle level.

Then you have tacit information, which is things happening in the universe that don’t disrupt other things in the universe. The lack of disruption means that the universe is assuming those things happened anyway. Then you have present information, which is you have things in the universe happening and disturbing other parts in the universe – whether that part is ten angstroms away or 10 light years away.

It is the adjustment of the universe to new information and other things happening in the universe. So tacit and present information work together. It is the unfolding and incorporating of information into the universe. If there’s—basically there’s this particle flux through space, where every millimeter of space has a gazillion photons flowing through it at any given instant. Those photons are either going to hit something and cause an absorption in space or not.
