For any one new to this idea the Information Universe is a theory of everything in which the universe is fundamentally information designed to produce a reality for conscience being such as ourselves to experience. As a result our universe is a form virtual reality that that is programmed and calculated to perform as it dose. While I am not the only one to propose such a thing, to best of my knowledge I have taken it further than any one else. I am mostly likely the first examine the idea from a creationist perspective. My approach to the concept that I call the Information Universe or Info-verse for short is base on Robert Herrmann’s General Intelligent Design and it is a specific interpretation of GID.
I first started thinking developing the Info-verse after realizing that the best way to explain certain aspects of reality is if it is a calculate information system. I have since found as a result of studying the double-slit experiment in Quantum Mechanics that it is really the only way of explaining all of the observations. Info-verse has also produced a novel version of quantum gravity in that it does not involve a graviton, but instead space and time are actually quantized with the fundamental units of plank length and plunk time. This model is consistent with Biblical creation particularly since it is easy to show how God could have created the universe from nothing but his own thoughts just a few thousand years ago.
The resent reported initial conformation of the existence of the Higgs particle started a study of the Higgs field and its implications for the Info-verse model. It turns out that Higgs field concept actually solves a problem I have been having in dealing with sunlight motion in quantized space-time. Since the speed of light is 1 plank length / plunk time. This explains why speed of light has to be the upper speed limit of the universe since it is the fastest an object can go through space in a continuous manner, that us not skipping over parts of space. However traveling slower than light requires staying is the same plank length for more than one plunk time, the problem was that I had no mechanism to regulate this process, however the Higgs field concept provides that mechanism.
In the Higgs field concept all particles naturally travel at the speed of light and would have 0 rest mass. However particles that have rest mass interact with this field such that they bounce back and forth with in the field slowing them down. Apply this to the Info-verse model the 1 plank length / plunk time speed would be the natural speed of a particle moving from one plank length to the next but the Higgs interaction causes particle with rest mass to bounce between two plank length until it moves on to the next according to its velocity.
This shows how good the Info-verse model is in that it fits existing concepts in physics so naturally.
