Fundamentals and Philosophical Implications of an Information-Theoretic Evolutionary Model of Accelerated Cosmological Expansion


ABSTRACT: The problem of "dark energy" is examined, and a hypothesis is proposed which holds that accelerated cosmological expansion is the result of information dynamics with a specific emphasis on the role of trans-biological intelligence. A basic discussion of quantum computing is presented, followed by a series of speculations on a possible approach to quantum gravity consistent with the information-theoretic model of accelerated expansion. Arguments in favor of considering such a possibility are presented. The basic philosophical implications of cosmological models in which trans-biological intelligence plays a key role are examined.
