Where does the identity of "things" come into play in things like computers. Where there is a specific number of pixels on a screen that can
represent information, each pixel is in a different position and by design is responsible for a different bit of information to create a whole image,
but are none the less identical to every other pixel in design. And then what is responsible for creating images is...well first I should say/think,
all the informational potential is already in the hardware/software of the computer... It then depends on a source of energy to make the system work,
and compute information.... In a sense energy = information ... because information does not exist without energy/matter and the differences between
all energy/matter is describable in terms of information,symbols,details.. Any way I didnt do this the justice I wanted, but do you think any of
these ideas can be discussed in relation to yours?
I basically started trying to bring this up, to try to show how a limited quantity/quality of items, a fixed finite amount, (cpu
storage,circuits,hardware,pixels,a computer has physical/spatial bounds) yet it can do so many different things,using the same pixels and same cpu
storage, it can create emergent phenomenon on the screen, and all of these phenomena relate back to the same/shared simple (not so simple, but in
terms of basic, primal fixed parts that are responsible for so many things) computer parts, relying on the same primal source of energy.
