The Zero Conjecture
Human beings are drawn to simplicity. We have an intuition that no matter how intractable a problem may seem it must ultimately be reducible. And as to confirm our hunch the path of enquiry has led us from the bewildering complexity of the cosmos to an understanding of underlying simplicity. But some problems are so ethereal that even phrasing the question is difficult. Pondering the nature of God, consciousness and the universe finds us juggling hard science and philosophy with mysticism. If we could find a common factor, a datum edge fundamental to all of these questions that is naturally simple we would be closer to a greater understanding of our universe and ourselves. The Zero Conjecture proposes that this pivotal commonality is the information that the number zero represents.

We shall seek to define God as that which is uncaused. That which exists has information. That which does not exist has zero information. Zero represents the absence of information which is of itself information. Zero is information. Furthermore, information is physical. The implications of this can be better understood by examining the relationship between objects and space. When objects are present space has dimension. And when objects are not present it can be said that the space has zero dimensions. Genesis; a space of zero dimensions is a single point. As with the absence of objects the same is true of space; without space there cannot be multiplicity. A space that does not contain objects is a singularity. This uncaused dimensionless singular point is the progenitor of the universe. God is zero.

This is a good topic for further discussion but what was initially written contains little more value than the identification of a paradox, namely that 0 is something and nothing at the same time. Clearly it cannot be both and since we can talk about it and it exists in our mind, it is something that exists in our mind. In that case, god becomes something that exists in our mind and I have to agree. By this example you have given evidence that god exist for the phenomenologist among us but materialists are going to disagree. In other words, you cannot prove something exists by saying it exists in the mind.

but rschultz...if it exists in the mind it exists somewhere...if it exists in reality it exists somewhere...if it exists in a nowhere state....that's a somewhere........no matter what situation, no matter what name we call it...something exists....and we don't know what it is...we just call it by a common name....

As far as the brain is concerned 'reality' exists internally in our own minds. Reality is a belief. Space, god, nothingness is a belief. the term "Zero" is only what the brain can perceive as zero. Who knows what we think as something being "zero" is actually the opposite externally from the brain. Belief exists only in the mind- "seeing is believing". God is socially constructed. hopefully something beyond what exists in the mind..exists.
Consider Albert Einstein's thought that "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."

I'll comment later in this thread . . .High, just wanted to say thanks a mil for sharing those thoughts, I've had some pretty long thought out ideas that your thread oddly enough spurred and evolved.
