Tom, very well done and informative summary. Your direction is spot on. Looking at the universe from the big bang to AI through the lens of information, I am starting a publishing project with OSV. I have a stack called "I think I see" for practice.

You might also be interested in taking a look at the book "Design in Nature" by Prof. Adrian Bejan at Duke. His formulation of the Constructal Law of physics provided me the foundation for a long-sought goal of uniting thermodynamics and information, which has born fruit over the last years. This will be the subject of my rants to come. Of course, being an info-geek, I don't have the attention span for a 1600 page tome, and hope to re-invent the book as a more efficient knowledge transmitter. I hope to have the opportunity to speak with you in the future.
