Structures, The Existential Triad, Physics, Metaphysics, Information, Knowledge, General Theory of Information, True Nature of Intelligence, and all that Jazz

Introduction Despite many books, articles, and various attempts to define them, the words “information” and “knowledge” remain confusing. Statements in peer-reviewed articles often contradict each other. For example, sensational statements like these “Your brain does not process information, retrieve knowledge or store memories” are made with certain assumptions about what information is. For this author,Continue reading “Structures, The Existential Triad, Physics, Metaphysics, Information, Knowledge, General Theory of Information, True Nature of Intelligence, and all that Jazz”

Knowledge is Related to Information as Matter is Related to Energy

As humans, we are privileged to live in multiple worlds where energy, matter, information, and knowledge interact and provide the means to execute our “life” processes. This blog discusses what the general theory of information and the theory of structural reality articulated by Prof. Mark Burgin tell us about these worlds and how we live in them.

What do We Learn from Cognitive Neuroscience and the Science of Information Processing Structures? What do They Have in Common?

“Long before children learn how to read, they obviously possess a sophisticated visual system that allows them to recognize and name objects, animals, and people. They can recognize any image regardless of its size, position, or orientation in 3-D space, and they know how to associate a name to it.” Stanislas Dehaene (2020) “How WeContinue reading “What do We Learn from Cognitive Neuroscience and the Science of Information Processing Structures? What do They Have in Common?”

What is Classical Computer Science, and What are its Boundaries?

“For millennia, the enigma of the world of Ideas or Forms, which Plato suggested and advocated, has been challenging the most prominent thinkers of the humankind.” Burgin, Mark. (2018). Ideas of Plato in the Context of Contemporary Science and Mathematics. Athens Journal of Humanities and Arts. 4. 10.30958/ajha.4.3.1. “The world model provided by the ExistentialContinue reading “What is Classical Computer Science, and What are its Boundaries?”

What is Information? How do We Produce it, and How do We Consume it? How Do We Know Whether Some Information is True or False?

“The general theory of information provides means for a synthesis of physics, psychology and information science playing the role of a metatheory for these scientific areas.”
