- Seth Lloyd

In order to figure out how to make atoms compute,

The amount of information that can be stored by the ultimate laptop,
10 to the 31st bits, is much higher than the 10 to

performing universal computation,

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.

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

Every physical system registers information,

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.
