Information Chalmers I 302
Information/"It from bit"/Wheeler/Chalmers: (Wheeler 1989, 1990), thesis: Information is fundamental to the physics of the universe, and even physical properties and physical laws could stem from information properties and the laws of information processing. (See also Fredkin (1990), Zureck (1990), Matzke (1992, 1994)). Note Chalmers I 388: Wheeler is concerned about yes/no responses in measurements as a basis for everything. Thus, he is closer to idealism than I am with my approach.
