The Trinity of Information, Energy and Matter
A current trend in thinking, initiated by John A. Wheeler of Princeton University, is to regard the physical world as made of information, with energy and matter as incidentals. Information in the Holographic Universe, J.D. Bekenstein, 2003, p. 59)
Professor Bekenstein regards “information” as a third force underlying the manifestations of matter and energy within time and space.
For me, this is clearly the case since it seems logical to assume that Creation is Consciousness (God) and Information (Father) is required for Consciousness, which also requires Energy (Spirit) to beget Matter (Son) in the 3rd dimension.
A 4th dimensional Trinity would be different from a 3rd dimensional Trinity, presumably, and although Information Energy, far less Matter, would not exist in time and space in the 4th dimension, Information would certainly still exist there and in all Creation or Consciousness.
But in the 3rd dimension we have matter in the physical Creation and besides Creation itself – physical and non-physical from the 3rd dimensional perspective – nothing is venerable, all-loving, almighty, eternal and awe-inspiring.
It is the beginning and end of all existence and of Being itself. Nothing else exists except Creation.
And everything in Creation clearly obeys the laws of logic, making everything part of Consciousness, as demonstrated in the previously mentioned Dreaming blog where New Scientist reported in vitro plant cell’s consistent logical responses, for one example of evidence. There is infinitely more evidence that could be generated to show that every cell, atom and subatomic particle uses logic. And we are made of cells.
Ternary Logic or 3 Value Logic (3VL)
But, although the plants and planets and everything in Creation obey the laws of logic – minimally binary logic – however, Creation or Consciousness requires ternary logic to be creative, and not just responsive, as in binary logic.
Looking at both ideas from the Bekenstein perspective, that means Creation or Consciousness needs Matter and Energy as well as Information to create, and so be God, here in the 3rd dimension.
But Information is vibrational Energy, so I wouldn’t think that Energy is incidental to Information, or Matter for that matter. Energy really is Information, just like it is Conscious Energy, or Material Energy. Everything is vibration, it is disputed that Einstein said, and which is the subject of the linked post.
