Response to common sense


Interesting conversation.
Postulated above is a law of conservation of information, and that this may lead to the reconstruction of the brain? Is that the point?
Who in science is talking about that?

That seems to be out of speculative philosophy, and not science, perhaps someone like Frank Tipler.
There are Christian scientists who put out speculative ideas, that allow for bodily resurrection by God, of course without saying that directly. That gets them in good with the Pope.

There are the laws of thermodynamics though, like the law of conservation of energy, and the laws of entropy, those are science.

But there is no law of conservation of information in science. As a matter of fact, entropy is exactly the opposite.
