Life under duress

This highly interesting article suggests that information does not disappear when matter falls into a black hole, but is instead stored in a complex string structure.

Now, does this mean that life could exist also in a black hole? Thoughts traveling in the vibrations of the strings, creatures living under conditions we are not equipped to fathom. Living in an expanding universe of their own, having no notion of the physical world we know...


It is life Jim, but not as we know it. Eheheh.

Some obvious data type jokes like "i'm not a number, i'm a string" come to mind, but hey, I've been having a horrendous headache for the whole day, so don't blame me, blame the pain.

You know, it is rare to hear a joke, which requires understanding of at least one specific programming language and an obscure British TV series.

I wouldn't call these jokes "obvious" by any stretch of imagination.

But I did spill my tea on the keyboard :-).

Maybe it tells us something about Henri's twisted mind. Or ours.

Nah, almost any programming language would do.

Had he said "I'm not an Integer range <>, I'm an Ada.Strings.Unbounded.Unbounded_String" would that have been a twisted joke.

Aye. Twisted indeed. Twisted strings, I mean.
