|This entire issue boils down to the question: Is it even possible for the laws of physics to explain information? In principle, as a matter of logic, they cannot. The laws of physics describe and prescribe the behavior of every bit of matter and energy in the universe. Physical laws govern the behavior of physical things.|
Information requires language. Language requires symbols and rules. Symbols are ABSTRACT THINGS...
So let me see if I've got this right. Symbols cannot be...say...seen or heard or...felt? Symbols are not "physical things" that are governed by physical laws? Pray tell...how do you detect them then?
With your mind. Or Mind.
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. - Jesus in Matthew 10:34
But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me. -Jesus in Luke 19:27
