Abstract

The solar system is a quantum computer? The following record is a record of intuition maturing in me for years. Was crystallized by under the influence of reading book on physics of the modern world (Wadhawan 2010) and is a logical consequence of reasoning, test results, known basic principles of physics. The thesis that the solar system is a quantum computer is very bold, so I will try to present logical reasoning to confirm such a hypothesis First, some quotes: "Szilard. constructing a theoretical engine (1929, 1964), showed the relationship between entropy and information. He showed that the entropy associated with the unit of information, namely one bit is k log 2. Observation of the particle with a researching or illuminating photon involves energy expenditure. This was consistent with the Szilard belief that obtaining a given amount of information is producing of certain amount of entropy " (Wadhawan, 2010: 50). Shannon entropy S is the negative size of the Shannon's information I (I =-S). The minus sign reflects the fact that entropy is a measure of ignorance or lack of information ("missing information"). Negative value, ie. the negative entropy or negentropy is a measure of the available information (Wadhawan 2010: 42). The more orderly is reality by the means of the ethics the more is amount of information contained therein. The more ethics in the system and the lower the entropy of the reality system. The work of Rolf Landauer on thermodynamic of processing data determined that the data processing operations, such as copying from one device to another, are like measurements: one device obtains information about the status of the other. (...) Landauer argued that the various logical states of the computer must correspond to different states physical computer equipment (hardware). For example, removal of the n-bit memory is equivalent to compression of the large numbers of logic states into a single state, similary to the piston compressing a gas. It follows from this that one can not erase the memory register without generating heat, and adding the entropy to the environment in an irreversible way. Landauer zidentyfikował kilka operacji, termodynamicznie nieodwracalnych. Wszystkie one usuwają informacje o przeszłym stanie komputera, tj. są "logicznie nieodwracalne". Krok wymazywania pamięci w silniku Szilarda jest logicznie nieodwracalny. Ściska on (niszczy) określoną informację o cząstce będącej na lewo (lub na prawo) do stanu "nie wiem". Dlatego też silnik nie może zresetować pamięci do stanu czystego bez dodania przynajmniej jednego bitu entropii do otoczenia. To zaś zamienia pracę wykonaną przez tłok w ciepło. Nic nie przychodzi za darmo! Tak więc wyjaśnieniem, dlaczego silnik Szilarda, jak też zresztą demon Maxwella, nie narusza drugiej zasady termodynamiki jest, że aby "zobaczyć" cząstkę silnik lub demon muszą najpierw zapomnieć wyniki poprzednich pomiarów, a ten fakt odrzucania informacji jest kosztowny w kategoriach termodynamicznych. At the end, we can now give a little differently formulated the answer to the question "Why Earth's complexity is increasing constantly?" The answer is that this happens because the sun is bombarding our ecosphere by the information (in the form of radiation of the negative entropy), the part of which is stored or trapped in increasingly complex ways. As more and more information is stored increases complexity. Tribus and McIrvine (1971) estimated that the sun radiates into space ~ 1,6x10 15 megawatt-hours of energy. This has the ability to reduce the entropy (in the average temperature of the Earth) of about ~ J 3,2x1022 per Kelvin per year; or 1038 bits per second. In process of decreasing entropy is stored information, and therefore increases itself the complexity (Wadhawan, 2010: 50-51).
