Is an Information Universe Scientific?
This is part four of the Information Universe series. See the link for part
Since the idea stems from scientific experiments it definitely can be
considered scientific in that sense. The big question that most people
asking this question would be is it falsifiable? While in one sense the
answer in no, because the basic principle could produce nearly any
conceivable universe, but some ideas considered to be science such as string
theory have the same problem. One thing makes an Information Universe
potentially falsifiable is that there are things that we would expect and
not expect in an Information Universe as a result it is essentially
testable. Also with in the general category of an Information Universe there
is room for specific models that are clearly falsifiable.
Hence the conclusion is that an Information Universe is a scientific
concept. It is not only derived from scientific but produces test results
and can produce specific falsifiable models of observed phenomenon. As a
result it can be considered to be scientific.
