About sam

Bio

Im a music composition major, but i have always been interested in a wide variety of disciplines. I love reading about new tech. and creative new ideas. Im from rochester NY, and i play piano, and write music and that is my life mostly.

An idea worth spreading

i dont know of one that hasnt been thought of, but perhaps Beethovens late string quartets. Or 9th symphony. or op110 piano sonata. The idea that the arts and music are still relevant. Bernstiens and stravinskys harvard lectures. The poetry of rabindranath tagore.

I'm passionate about

poetry, economics, music, movies, social issues, science and tech, linguistics

Talk to me about

anything, hopefully stuff i dont know about

so does....symmetry/asymmetry and the compression of information....in the fundamental laws....play a role.....in those configurations.......so that say an anti proton / proton mixture.....such as those in a neutron star....might have less or more entropy....based on the fundamental laws...

ok....so are there any growth patterns....that the universe seems to favor...because of the fundamental laws......? Is it possible to trace the fundamental asymmetries/symmetries all the way back....to the initial high entropy state.....and say ok....this particle(higgs boson for example) arose from this form...and then from then on....evolve all the emergent types of growth...into higher complexity forms..... i guess my question...if it makes sense....is did form or content come first.....or both together.....(I studied music...so I really dont have much technical knowledge)

Hi. My question is a little off track.....but I think it has to do with the idea of entropy just not on the cosmological scale. I recently watched a youtube video by a physicist at the University of Boulder. (Albert Bartlett) His talk was basically about how we often fail to understand exponential growth, in regards to population, and economies. I read your book "The Arrow of Time", and I can not claim to have absorbed or understood all of the implications of the thought experiments; however, i found the part about entropies relation to complexity....and maxwells demon's relation to life to be some of the most mind blowing parts that I read. I wonder if you could elaborate a connection between those concepts and exponential growth(if there is any).......i figured because of the relationship of thermodynamics....to the consumption of resources that there is one........
