The SpaceTime dimension and the alternate Energy-Matter dimension

Last Wednesday, I received an epiphany. My diagram below is the result of that. I think, feel and believe that my epiphany is important. It captures my current understanding of my blog topics: Data / Info, Energy vs Matter, and the Spacetime dimension. Spacetime is the only known known dimension to us. In practical terms, space has 3 sub dimensions: length, width,...

Why information is central to physics and the universe itself (Big Think)

The dominant species in evolution are bacteria....

Our body is a network and so is everything else

Mid April 2018, I wrote my blog Know thyself a.k.a. Who am I? Its first paragraph wonders how 37.2 trillion cells can view themselves as "one". A recent Aeon article - You are a network - sheds some light on this discrepancy and on my implicit question. The article's subtitle reads as follows: "You cannot be reduced to a body, a mind or a particular social role. An...
