Lee Smolin, in a book "Three Roads To Quantum Gravity" which I've just been reading quite a bit of; says the idea that space is "channels of communication"; he suggests that everything physical is the flow of information.

Wow! Because Dr. Stafford suggests that "any communicable information obeys physics laws" and I found I can map a lot of physics on the model of "a conference or discussion where every point of view is given a hearing and no one is left out".

y) We define "life" and a code was necessary to define it. What if we
define life in more than one way and then
evolve a theory for each definition
(ie.
1) "life" is encoded as the DNA;
2) "life" uses encoded material but is not encoded -- is ghostly presence;
3) "life" is encoded in an abstract or a mental alphabet _still unknown
but uses DNA code.
4) what we call "life" is actually the heightened self-consciousness of a
universe in the death throes of entropy (80 billion years of entropy might
be a disturbed condition after a longer, static universe lifetime);
5) ?
Human culture is not following nature's rule of using as little as possible
at the moment -- or are we? "
