sethoflagos Posted February 22 Share Posted February 22 I watched a Youtube video tonight that pulled together a few lines of thought that I'd been pondering over without linking them together. What really grabbed me was the contrast between the fragility and improbability of complex civilisation with the indestructability of quantum information. Why such a visceral reaction to this? Well I've not taken part in any democratic process for over 25 years on the grounds of too much hassle; I don't live in the country where I could vote; my vote probably wouldn't make much of a difference anyway. And yet those decisions not to act, via the indestructabilty of quantum information, must have measurable consequences stretching out to the end of time. That's one hell of a long time for the butterflies wingflap to perturb the evolution of the universe. I'm seeing the epitaph on my tombstone.
