Physicist Brian Miller on Information as the Basis of the Universe


On a new episode of ID the Future, Sarah Chaffee talks with physicist and CSC research coodinator Brian Miller about a recent article arguing that the fundamental basis of the universe is information. Listen to the conversation here.

In this podcast, Dr. Miller explains how physicists have come to rethink the role of information in underlying the reality before our eyes. Increasingly, the direction of research points away from a materialist view in which information is seen as a byproduct of matter to a view in which information is seen as fundamental to the fabric of the cosmos, the foundation of physical existence. That helps to explain the fine-tuning of the physical constants that make a life-friendly universe possible, and more.
