Intelligence As a Basic Ingredient of the Universe
Properties of Intelligence
(1) Intelligence is a basic ingredient of the universe and forms an integral part of its fabric along with matter-energy and space-time.
In quantum mechanics matter and energy are considered equivalent and often simply referred to as matter-energy. Space and time are also usually seen as a four-dimensional continuum, as originally suggested by Einstein. A conceptual diagram of the basic ingredients of the universe is indicated in Figure 1 below.
The basic ingredients are totally interrelated and interdependent upon each other. Intelligence has a direct mathematical relationship to the other basic ingredients, in part based on information theory.1... More complex states of intelligence require an increasingly complex distribution and spatial concentration of matter-energy, as well as a continuation of the expansion of the universe in space-time. The mathematical expressions will be discussed later in other sections.
Prior to the "big bang," when matter-energy was in a hyperconcentrated, highly condensed state and occupied a very limited space, it would not have been possible for intelligence to manifest itself in the same way that it presently does, just as it was not possible for matter-energy to form the various isotopes (elements) or other more complex objects that we see within our world and universe at this time.
