Re: "Everything" need a little more than 0 information

Gentlemen (and Ladies, if some be present here),

I offer you a small bit of wisdom and irony,
presented in a bit of humor.

Statement of vernacular AND mathematical truth:

"The universe is an ODD PLACE." (!)

[i.e., it is imbalanced and -not- fundamentally symmetric]


  -infinity <--- [zero] ---> +infinity

The symmetric infinities balance and cancel each other
out, leaving an entity~identity having no complement;
an 'odd' remainder.

So, when all is said and done, the universe is
essentially an 'odd place'. :-)))

Jamie Rose

ps. then again, you might want to do what I am
doing: looking to build a more complete mathematics
in which some states of [one] and [zero] are
equal to each other. ! :-) jr
