A WISE QUOTE FOR MONDAY MORNING
"Evidently Nature can no longer be seen as matter and energy alone. Nor can all her secrets be unlocked with the keys of chemistry and physics, brilliantly successful as these two branches of science have been in our century. A third composition is needed for any explanation of the world that claims to be complete. To the powerful theories of chemistry and physics must be added a later arrival: a theory of information.
Nature must be interpreted as matter, energy and information."
~ Jeremy Campbell, 'Grammatical Man: Information, Entropy, Language and Life' (1982)
