[Beginning of recorded material]

One more thing I was thinking about with regard to information in the universe. Inside of a computer, things have definite values and things represent specific. When you think about things going on in a computer, you think about every flip from a 1 to a 0 equals a definite change in some linear and very regimented process, which results in rigid calculations in the computer. But when you look at how we perceive the world, let’s try to perceive an orange as an example.

Light bounces off the orange and hits your eye, and you get enough photons off the orange and you’re able to perceive it as an orange, but it doesn’t particularly matter which orange in the orange’s skin.

Rick Rosner: Photons carry the energy from electromagnetic interactions, and I think, it just takes small, not imbalances, but asymmetries. Asymmetries does not seem like the right word either—it just takes a small shift, a one part in 10^40th, in the characteristics of electromagnetic interactions. That would be enough to account for gravitation. That could be something as simple as taking self-repulsion or self-attraction of electromagnetic interactions.

But I don’t know—whatever it’s called, I’m talking out of my butt. So imagine a universe where you have 5 of each. So that should be a next attractive universe in my lame way of trying to understand stuff because each proton, because opposites attract, is attracted by 5 of the other thing, but only repelled by 4 of its own thing. It is like being in a family with 5 brothers and 4 sisters.

Each member of the family always has more of the other sexed sibling regardless of which sex you’re talking about. Each boy has 4 brothers and 5 sisters. Each girl has 4 sisters and 5 brothers. If you’re able to pull out some self-repulsion out of the next attraction versus repulsion, that might be enough to account for gravity, or some other trick that leaves gravitation in the hands of the electromagnetic interaction.
