Nature Destroys Information

There are many previously unsolved problems in physics which are or will be solved using the Neoclassical Physics and Quantum Gravity (NPQG) model. In this post I’ll discuss Physical Information.

For NPQG basics see: Idealized Neoclassical Model and the NPQG Glossary.


Physical information: Are there physical phenomena, such as wave function collapse or black holes, that irrevocably destroy information about their prior states? How is quantum information stored as a state of a quantum system?

Regarding wave function collapse, it is not such a dramatic event! It is a routine intermediate state transition between two energy levels which is usually well describable mathematically.

Energy transfers are lossless and conservative, so no information is lost.

Black holes are a different matter. Information is lost as gravity crushes and transmutes standard matter and spacetime towards the Planck scale. Ultimately, the Planck core contains no information and can be described with a single bit – Planck core or not Planck core. However, entropy is conserved, which is an adjustment to the 2nd law of thermodynamics.

Information is destroyed. Information becomes inaccessible from outside the black hole when that information crosses the event horizon into the black hole. However, whichever way matter-energy comes out of the black hole, it has absolutely zero information. The two ways out are Hawking radiation and Planck core emission as a plasma. Either way, no information is contained. We can assert that some information must have been destroyed. I suppose it is possible for a particular piece of information to somehow survive for a long time in a black hole without making its way to the Planck core, but that’s a losing battle,

PREDICTIONS AND HYPOTHESES

  • Nature destroys information in the black hole recycling process.
  • We didn’t cover this here, but if this superfluid bubble is finite, information may also be destroyed in the recycling process at the bubble surface.
  • Information is not encoded on the surface area of a black hole event horizon.
  • The holographic universe concept is wrong.
  • Entropy is conserved. The 2nd Law is actually an equality.
