Information and quantum mechanics

When discussing quantum mechanics or the study of particles in general, information is the instructions that give a particle its particular characteristics. Information therefore is a code that gives existence to particles ultimately the universe including us.

Energy the guiding foundation thus far in a science like physics needs to be looked into in consideration of information. Energy is a huge concept that physics adopted. All the changes we see in the universe occur because of energy. Having defined information, the changes in the universe that we see can be equated to the result of information and therefore should rightly be equated with information. Though varied in many ways, every change can be equated to information, to changes in conditions of information, energy therefore can be equated to information.
Energy = f(Information)

But what about E = MC2. Both mass and the speed of light are determined by the intermingling of information. Mass is just many particles lumped together, these particles created by information.But of course E = MC2 has one last great gift to give. When light is equal to zero, c = 0, there is no energy, at one dimension there is no light particles come from a 2 dimensional field and corresponding waves must be 2 dimensional as well. But at one dimension there is still information. Just information about how to create particles. Even then things are happening at a one dimensional level apparently without any force, without any use of energy, entanglement comes to mind, created in 1 D but its effects felt even in 3rd dimension.

I = n + f(E) where:
I = information, n = amount of information without any energy, E = energy.
This gives us a function of energy
E = f(I) - n,             and f(I) > n
Current theory would best take this into account as things get more and more complicated.

Information is a discrete variable, you cannot have half an instruction, there would be total chaos. Perhaps think of a computer, would half a bit make sense, maybe, but you can not have half a particle. DNA is information, what is half a gene. Funny enough information being discreet makes everything else discrete, this is a great thought exercise.

What is happening in colliders. Two packs of information collide, information that goes into hat particle breaks up, enormous amount of information is released, a great deal of energy is released. We then can study this information that has been released. This way we crack the code of existence little by little.

We have information that ultimately determines the size, function, polarization, density of matter that makes up the particle. A lot of information goes into a particle, a lot of other particles that are just information. Somehow, all this information  fits nicely into a particle though at times some information looks too big to fit and make one neat particle.

The information going into the particle is unstable once broken up, it is unstable in this information denser 3rd dimension. It returns to the lower dimensions.

Information density is what creates particles, that is why we can call particles a basic information pack. A particle is created by the right density of information for it to be stable in our 3rd dimensions. By smashing particles we are looking at the most basic information we can reach with our current technology.

We can attempt to explain the big bang around the concept of information. The big bang occurred when information density in an overall system reached such a level that it overwhelmed itself and information broke down. The information rich conditions allowed new particles to be created with information that had just been broken up.

Each unit of information is zero dimensional,the most basic information is to create  bands of like information. It is the only way to make sense. Each band therefore is one dimensional and made up of one dimensional points of like information. One dimension is information rich, information is everywhere. However there is no structure . Bands of information have instructions at such a density of information they should join. The strings band together to create formless matter, this is our field, it is two dimensional. 2 dimensional been more information dense than one dimension, that is more information dense than 0 dimensions.

If we considered these bands strings in one dimension, then in two dimension these bands are joining together, each band with different information. Remember each band , each string is made up of infinite dimensional information that is all the same. Each string carries different information, this banding of strings gives us formless matter. Without string theory thought it would be impossible the jump from 0 dimensions to 2 dimensions. Information has to be sufficient enough to create formless matter and more dense as more and more information comes together. We have movement but no energy. The information is not dense enough to create light, or mass as we sense it.

As 2d fields gets more and more dense there is enough conditions to create a repulsion of the information, this is the big bang. Infinite 2 dimensional waves creating our 1 3rd universe. When dense enough the information can be solid to our hands as the first particles are created. At their most basic levels still having string like behavior until the information density becomes too great. Strings remain in the 3rd dimensions, they are information, just above most basic. Bands of strings create formless matter, as information becomes more complex from mixing, bands getting bigger, we finally end up with a particle. A particle in this way can be thought of as a band of strings, each string having different information. The bigger the band the more instructions, with enough instructions we get particles.

Information density has a crucial role to play . How does information density affect a particle. A particle reacts physically like a particle created at the same time we call this entanglement. At what point does entanglement become too weak to be meaningful. It can only be reduced in strength by information density. This can be tested by redoing Alain Aspects Bell experiment. To make it exciting one particle must pass through particle of different polarization. This is what can be termed a completion test for this experiment made well known in his field. We expect entanglement to remain strong.

What is more interesting is to take 2 particles, place one in an environment it reacts easily, then manipulate the first particle, does the second particle react. The beauty of the logic is entanglement still holds, the particle still reacts instantaneously, but information is more dense countering effects of entanglement on the overall environment of the second particle.

The information of a particle is just that. The information making an electron is such that it desires to be connected to information that has created protons and neutrons. The higher density of information associates the electron, proton and neutron to create a system, what we call elements. The information that goes into creating water is identical to that creating gold. Identical patterns, protons, neutrons, and electrons. The information is the same except for quantity. It is this playing with how much code that gives the universe all its diversity in all the ways that diversity can be applied.

All information is independent and of equal value. Though literally trillions of amounts of information, it is mainly through rearrangement of information, and quantity. All information is of equal value because if just one piece of information was different, it would not be the same existence as the logic must lead back to the creation of the Particle. Everything acts as it does because of information.
