Complex Simplicity and Simple Complexity

We all spend energy getting and handing over information. It is impossible to use Internet, if there is not electricity; to get information by mobile phone, if it has not been charged; to speak on stationary phone, if there is not electricity in phone station; to pass long distance for getting information, if benzene is over – all these are impossible. Even it is impossible to tell some words to your neighbor, if you don’t have strength to lift your legs.

All these are technical (just technical!) limitations. Because, theoretically, there is no obstacle for getting information by not spending energy, as well as, in contrary, by getting energy. It is also reasonable. If we spend energy when getting information, then we have to get energy when handing over information. This is because information is another form of energy, to be more exact – it is another name of energy.

If one thing has two names, inverse relation appears between them. The more people say “Good bye”, the less people will say “Salamat qal” (“Good-bye” in Azeri). Energy is in reverse relation with mass too – it is from physics – remember, there is also such a coefficient as square of the light speed. If it is so, is mass and information in direct relation? In a whole, it is just like this. That is, when mass grows information increases as well. Reverse of this is correct to.

Theoretically it is possible that you make change – you collect the all information and press it – what next? Information disappears. I mean, it becomes inaccessible. But what remains? Yes, it is mass. A mass as big as the Universe, pale, homogenous – even more monotonous mass than dark substance of astrophysicists (it is the substance which nobody knows something proper about, but let’s speak about it later).
