The idea of an informational universe gives us some solace in the face of death. We survive in the information we leave behind, the information we have created, the information that others create about us, the information encoded in our descendants.
Now do this for us. Visualise this informational universe as a refulgent, complex network crackling with energy.
Can you see that big fat shining node in the centre of the network?
That’s David Bowie, and he is alive.
