There's an article on information in today's Guardian newspaper science
section. It's also online at
Here's a quote from it:
Richard Feynman once said nobody can understand quantum mechanics,
but Murray Gell-Mann, also a Nobel prize winner, disagrees. He
is sure we can make sense of it, but only if we work information
theory into the mix.
How is this relevant here? Memes and genes are both units of information,
and the relationships between matter, energy and information are highly
relevant to both genetics and memetics.
