I think I might have had the realization of purpose that I’ve sought for a long time. The Golden Age of Information will need the proper definition of Information Science. One day, “math” will be the union of the math of today and the information science of the future. The math of today, who knows, but I think it’ll be recognized as a formal subset of the larger system.
The math we’re going to figure out is gonna be pretty important. It is literally the formalized notion of process, and we will probably apply it to ourselves, to each other, to civilizations, to the stars – to the whole universe. There’s a lot of things out there to understand, and information science will be what allows it.
Whatever I can do, I’d like to help.
