4. Proof Of Afterlife By Information
The first computer was called ENIAC which is short for Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer. It was developed in 1946 to calculate artillery firing tables for the United States military. ENIAC contained of 17,000 vacuum tubes and weighed more than 30 tons. Each digital bit used 36 vacuum tubes.
ENIAC could be programmed. It was capable of performing sequences of operations. It was also capable of performing branches and loops. The process of programming ENIAC took weeks. Programming was a process of manually writing computer instructions in binary using front panel switches. Programmers would setup an instruction by entering its binary code in manual switches then write that code into a specific memory location. Once the program was loaded into successive memory locations it could be run. ENIAC had no moving parts. Everything was done electronically. It was the first modern computer. ENIAC started in 1946 and remained in continuous operation until 1955.
What started out as a better way to calculate artillery tables became the most significant invention of mankind. In 1975 Gordon Moore, cofounder of Intel Corporation, came up with Moore’s Law. Moore’s Law states that the number of transistors in computer processors doubles every two years. Since the beginning in 1946 computer processing power has exploded exponentially. It is hard to imagine life without computers. In 50 years computers have taken over every aspect of life.
While processing power has increased the basic computer model remains the same. A computer is fundamentally a processor surrounded by memory. Humans never saw this computer revolution. The first computer was like life itself. Once it got a foothold it became apparent the human race was onto something fundamental.
When computers began they were a novelty. Most people believed computers were little more than fancy calculators. They thought the physical world was analog. They thought only the computer world was digital. In the beginning 99 percent of the world was analog and one percent was digital. As the technology developed it became apparent that computer digital world was larger than they thought. Now people believe the digital is as large, or larger than the analog world. Most everything is being converted to digital format. The computer revolution is so aggressive it is apparent eventually it will replace everything. My belief is the essence of life digital. What we are seeing now in computers is just scratching the surface of the biological computer in all living things. Everything is digital. We live in a digital world.
No where is that more apparent than DNA. DNA is a computer program that provides instructions for building a living being. We get enamored with the sophistication of computer devices. A typical memory drive may last ten years. DNA has been found that is over 500,000 years. After all that time it is still readable! There is nothing in computer technology can approach DNA for memory storage. Furthermore the data density is of DNA is larger than anything we know. DNA is so complex and dense that one gram can store up to 500 exabytes of data. DNA condenses the building instructions of a living being and condenses it so small that it fits inside of every cell in the body. There are 20 trillion cells in the human body. Each cell contains the full instruction set to put the being together. We stand in awe of what biology can do in terms of data and memory.
DNA demonstrates life is digital. Analog is merely a shadow of the digital world. Biology is light years ahead of computer technology. This section proves afterlife from a computer technology perspective. I begin this section by showing how memory can be built. Memory in humans is as advanced as DNA. Memory is manifested in biology with nerves. Who knows how it is organized? The human mind is complicated beyond comprehension. Like DNA the concept is simple. We store and process information. DNA does not use a binary system. It is more highly evolved. The human mind is highly evolved too. However it is a central processor surrounded by memory.
