I ran across this when referencing quantum computing posted by Gentill Abdulla www.abovetopsecret.com...

Robert Anton Wilson - Information Explosion


Terrence McKenna helped formulate the breakdown.

So the breakdown on doubling of information is:

Once between Christ and Leonardo Da Vinci

Once between Da Vinci and the Revolution

Once again between Revolution and early 1900's

Once again in 1950, 1960, 1967, 1973
Today info doubles every 18 months and by 2012 it is expected to double every day and then by the end of 2012 every second....WOW
Should be interesting times technologically speaking.

Peace

We are supposed to have computers that can process more information than the entire human race.

I think I saw a video about it.

Oh and thanks for the mentioning.

Very cool video! Thanks for the post, S&F!

What are the odds that this would be posted the day after I found my ancient copy of "The Illuminati Papers" in an old cardboard box at my parents?

and in the same breath he says he found the limits of his own gullibility because he doesn't believe it.

It's ridiculous to think information will be doubling every second by the end of 2012...nobody here believes that, do they? Not even the guy in the video who said that believes it! What nonsense.

Now the historical information about doubling of information is a different story, that's actually real and interesting.

Even monthly doubling will be crazy! I can't think of what it would be like unless the quantum computer comes out for processing. Then the ole Matrix style brainstem interface and here we go.

Moving into infinity...interesting
I like his analogy of calling infinity or god what it is because it is the grandest thing we can relate it to. I like Wilson's charisma and humor...RIP Robert

information can easily double every second when next/next/next... generation computers start generating it. artificial intelligence is pretty much here.

This is something i have been theorizing lately. Check out some of the ideas i have been having on information and quantum physics.

Me and my theories.

Thanks for the invite!


I read thru the thread and response and can't think of much else to add...the direction and content is a little over my head but I like the "choice is motion" notion.
I just watched part 3 of Through The Wormhole and thought you might dig it!

These technological advances sure are gonna keep life interesting.

Peace
