I have not proved that the universe is,
by Seth Lloyd

I have not proved that the universe is,
in fact, a digital computer and that it's capable of
performing universal computation,
but it's plausible that it is.
- Seth Lloyd

Computers are famous for being able to do complicated
things starting from simple programs.
- Seth Lloyd

If you wanted to build the most powerful computer you could,
you can't do better than including everything in the
universe that's potentially available.
- Seth Lloyd

Another feature that everybody notices about the universe is that it's complex.
- Seth Lloyd

 

All physical systems can be thought of as registering
and processing information,
and how one wishes to define computation will determine
your view of what computation consists of.
- Seth Lloyd

In order to figure out how to make atoms compute,
you have to learn how to speak their language and to
understand how they process information under normal circumstances.
- Seth Lloyd

We have a picture for how complexity arises,
because if the universe is computationally capable,
maybe we shouldn't be so surprised that things are
so entirely out of control.
- Seth Lloyd

At some point, Moore's law will break down.
- Seth Lloyd

Nothing in life is certain except death,
taxes and the second law of thermodynamics.
- Seth Lloyd

Merely by existing and evolving in time -
by existing -
any physical system registers information,
and by evolving in time it transforms or processes that information.
- Seth Lloyd

One of the things that I've been doing recently in
my scientific research is to ask this question:
Is the universe actually capable of performing things
like digital computations?
- Seth Lloyd

Thinking of the universe as a computer is controversial.
- Seth Lloyd

The amount of information that can be stored by the ultimate laptop,
10 to the 31st bits, is much higher than the 10 to
the 10th bits stored on current laptops.
- Seth Lloyd

Science consists exactly of those forms of knowledge
that can be verified and duplicated by anybody.
- Seth Lloyd

In this metaphor we actually have a picture of the computational universe,
a metaphor which I hope to make scientifically precise
as part of a research program.
- Seth Lloyd

Similarly, another famous little quantum fluctuation
that programs you is the exact configuration of your DNA.
- Seth Lloyd

There are considerable advantages to using many degrees
of freedom to store information,
stability and controllability being perhaps the most important.
- Seth Lloyd

Something else has happened with computers.
- Seth Lloyd

If you take a more Darwinian point of view the dynamics
of the universe are such that as the universe evolved in time,
complex systems arose out of the natural dynamics of the universe.
- Seth Lloyd

Indeed, as the above calculation indicates,
to take full advantage of the memory space available,
the ultimate laptop must turn all its matter into energy.
- Seth Lloyd

It's also a reasonable scientific program to look at
the dynamics of the standard model and to try to prove
from that dynamics that it is computationally capable.
- Seth Lloyd

Of course, not everybody's willing to go out and do the experiments,
but for the people who are willing to go out and do that,
- if the experiments don't work, then it means it's not science.
- Seth Lloyd

According to the standard model billions of years ago
some little quantum fluctuation,
perhaps a slightly lower density of matter,
maybe right where we're sitting right now,
caused our galaxy to start collapsing around here.
- Seth Lloyd

Every physical system registers information,
and just by evolving in time, by doing its thing,
it changes that information, transforms that information,
or, if you like, processes that information.
- Seth Lloyd

Instead of having to be a member of the Royal Society to do science,
the way you had to be in England in the 17th,
18th, centuries today pretty much anybody who wants to do it can,
and the information that they need to do it is there.
- Seth Lloyd

What's happened with society is that we have created these devices,
computers, which already can register and process huge amounts of information,
which is a significant fraction of the amount of information
that human beings themselves,
as a species, can process.
- Seth Lloyd

Of course, one way of thinking about all of life and
civilization is as being about how the world registers
and processes information.
Certainly that's what sex is about; that's what history is about.
- Seth Lloyd

I would suggest, merely as a metaphor here,
but also as the basis for a scientific program to investigate
the computational capacity of the universe,
that this is also a reasonable explanation for why the universe is complex.
- Seth Lloyd

"one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
- Hans Christian Andersen
