The Big Talk Theory of the Origin of Life(BTTOL)

MISSION STATEMENT: Refutation of thermodynamics as a biogenesis. BTTOL researchers are organized around the sole purpose of preventing any biogenesis other than a Personal Cause from being legally recognized.

Who is listening to the Big Talk?

In our previous postings, we have arrived at some startling results:

1) Love is the message that birthed (and continually gives birth) to life and the universe.
2) Messages must have the orthagonal properties of redundancy and parallelism.
3) Love must have many willing and patient receptors (parallelism).
4) Free will and faith are required to ensure sucessful (error-free) rebirth.
5) Love is a continually spoken message from a transpersonal source (redundancy).


I stress that the word transpersonal implies the existance of what would most accurately be described as Spirit. Thus, the source of this transpersonal message can be taken as the Spirit of Love.

What about the transpersonal message receptor whose primary concern is the reception of this message of Love? Since mankind is the only class of being capable of both free-will and faith, this receptor can be referred to as the Spirit of Man.

In order to further support these statements, the next posting will seek to determine whether there exist any group or groups within mankind which can be shown to possess these beliefs, and are engaged in the active error-free rebirth of life and the universe.

The Message in the BTTOL

In the previous post, some of the characteristics of the message in the BTTOL were explored. Invoking Shannon's theories of information, some of the message's error correcting capabilities were discussed.

Shannon's theories give orthagonal characteristics that any message must possess in order to be reliably received; namely:

1) Parallelism (vertical)
2) Redundancy (horizontal)


This is an accurate characterization of any kind of reliable communication. But what is the message? Given that this message created (and is continually doing so) life, the universe and everything, it can be postulated that the message has something to do with creativity, birth, conception and a core intent to be made manifest (labour).

In no special order:
- creativity
- birth
- conception
- labour

If the above keywords are placed into any popular search engine, the word "Love" appears in the most relevant results.

Could Love be the message in the BTTOL? Is Love a message? If so, then we know that in order for an entity to reliably receive Love, an orthagonal approach must be undertaken.

Firstly (in the vertical), there must be receptors, preferably as many as possible. Since Love implies consent, any receptor must possess free will. This would require entities choosing to believe that the message of Love exists, is being continually broadcast everywhere from some transpersonal source, and can be received.

Secondly, (in the horizontal) these willing entities would require an unwavering ability to persevere in the decision to act as receptors.

Consider the following wikipedia definition of the word "faith":

"The word faith has various uses; its central meaning is similar to "belief", "trust" or "confidence", but unlike these terms, "faith" tends to imply a transpersonal rather than interpersonal relationship – with God or a higher power. The object of faith can be a person (or even an inanimate object or state of affairs) or a proposition (or body of propositions, such as a religious credo). In each case, however, the faithful subject's faith is in an aspect of the object that cannot be rationally proven or objectively known. Faith can also be defined as accepting as true something which one has been told by someone who is believed to be trustworthy. In its proper sense faith means trusting the word of another."

So reception of the Love that is the message in the BTTOL requires orthagonal faith - many willing and patient receptors.

In the next posting, a summarization of the results of the discussion thus far will be given.

Claude Shannon: A BigTalker?

Claude Shannon's well known Information Theories have direct impact on the Big Talk Theory.

Given that the BTTOL claims that the universe was spoken into existance, Information Theory becomes extremely relevant to this central statement.

For messages to be sent and recieved on any given channel, noise must always be taken into account. There is always a probability that the orginal message will be corrupted on route to its destination ("Principal Skinner likes fudge silly bungle apple cherry")

Shannon's theories give limits to how much information can be reliably transmitted and recieved on a given channel, yeilding the measures of information bandwidth very much in use today.

BTTOL claims there is an originating message that created life, the universe and everything. It not only was received by the universe, it actually contained the receiving universe.

There is an on going exploration (on this blog, at least) of the idea that this universe-carrying message is still being transmitted. This would fit with Shannon's theories, in that in order to improve reception, one means is to repeat the message continually.

This reduces the over-all bandwidth (information limit), reducing the probability that the universe is infinite not only in spatial dimension, but also temporally as well.

Another means of improving reception is to have parallel receivers aligned in an array. This opens up the possibility of parallel universes, each having identical probability of reception error.

This gives two necessary error-correcting characteristics of BTTOL

1) BTTOL is a repetitive signal (continually broadcast)
2) BTTOL is a parallel signal (multiple channels)

In essence BTTOL is the same message transmitted over and over, simultaneously recieved everywhere.

In the next posting, the meaning of the BTTOL message itself shall be explored.
