Informational Nature of Being
Today I would like to invite you to join me on the “Road to digital divine”; it is the title of my first book in the series of books entitled “Informational Nature of Being”. It is rooted in the computational nature of mind and matter.
What would you need to trek this road? You will need two fundamental tools.
First is the mental understanding. It is an understanding that will take you from your current perceptual reality where you see yourself as separate from everything else to a reality that leads to your understanding of oneness or unity consciousness. Second is the experiential understanding, i.e. a know-how that allows you to feel or experience that profound oneness that exists at the root of all.
Before I elaborate, let me start with a quote:
The universe is made of bits. Every molecule, atom, and elementary particle registers bits of information. Every interaction between those pieces of the universe processes that information by altering those bits. That is, the universe computes, and because the universe is governed by the laws of quantum mechanics, it computes in an intrinsically quantum-mechanical fashion; its bits are quantum bits. The history of the universe is, in effect, a huge and ongoing quantum computation. The universe is a quantum computer.
-Programming the Universe – Seth LLoyd
Dr. Seth LLoyad is Professor of quantum mechanical engineering at MIT and a pioneer in the field of quantum computing. What is the meaning of digital? The word “Digital” means discreet or not continuous. Digital vs. analog signal. In this context we mean digital information. Like BIT, the smallest element of binary information. Yes, the binary logic. Yes we are all very familiar with this logic. For example, an electrical switch, it can be either in on position or off position. Either yes or no. 0 or 1. Our computers are programmed with this logic. Giant internet is another example of a system operating on binary logic. All MP3 players, iphones, smart PDAs all are possible because of advancements in this logic.
Can you imagine a switch that can be on and off both at the same time? It will challenge your sensibilities. You may not be able to think of an answer immediately.
When I shared this with my wife Seema during a casual evening walk, she said “What kind of science fiction is this?” Except it is not the science fiction. It is a science fact. All quantum entities follow this logic. They stay in both on or off positions until they are observed. Once they are observed they assume one of the two on or off position.
So what? I am not a quantum entity. I am large classical object that follows binary logic, you may say. Not quite. You are made up of trillions of cells. Each of these cells are made up of molecules which in turn are made up of atoms and eventually quantum entities. So I am firmly rooted in quantum information just as these tiny quantum entities.
Can you believe that everything that you see around you, including yourself can be explained as elaborate programs comprising of yes/no? Ultimately, every thing in our universe is made from elaborate programs of these binary and quantum switches. It implies that information is at the root of all matter and energy. Not the other way round.
Accordingly, our universe is an informational entity and so are we and every thing that surrounds us. What it implies is that all laws of physics, chemistry and biology are all special case of laws of information leading to computational nature of matter and mind.
Okay, I am an informational entity, so how does it affect me? Well, if every thing is ultimately berried in quantum information, then the smallest component of quantum information that makes us all is quantum BIT. Quantum bit is not only at the root of all sciences but it is also at the root of all religions and spirituality and even all mighty GOD or one may say Digital divine.
It combines elements of infinite or supreme logic with infinite or supreme oneness or love. This feature of quantum computation has remarkable likenesses to the dimensions of spirituality. So-called mystics may now believe that finally there is an expression of science, which supports what they have always believed in.
It reminds me of a quote from Maharajji, a spiritual master of our times:
Every one knows that there are many drops in the ocean,
But very few know that there is ocean in each drop.
I want you to be the one who know that there is ocean in the drop.
The QUBIT is the drop, it makes the Ocean, and Every QUBIT contains the OCEAN in its being!!
As we take this road to Digital Divine, at the least, the gap between the scientific and spiritual wisdom is narrowing, in a meaningful way.
