The Story of Information - Jim Al-Khalili | Quantum Physics BBC Science Documentary 2019 4.5
Professor Jim Al-Khalili investigates one of the most important concepts in the world today - information. He discovers how we harnessed the power of symbols, everything from the first alphabet to the electric telegraph through to the modern digital age. But on this journey he learns that information isn't just about human communication, it's woven very profoundly into the fabric of reality.

Is he really saying at minute 31: "Entscheidungsproblem" or I am getting too German after over 30 years in the country? Good documentary, thanks for posting!

Good docu but I watched it in 1.75x speed because they are always talking SO SLOWLY. Jesus! Don't fall asleep while talking, mister. Yet then, the content is cool.

You need wickedness out of the human heart first and foremost before beauty, order and structure through information can be achieved - great documentary

Tired of Turing hype, what about Babbage or Von Neumann, for a change. These british academics are breaking their arms wanking on Turing and Newton.

Let us never forget, how British so called intelligence treated Alan Turning, and how, beyond the wonders of information to push forward the human evolutionary journey, his work has been bastardised and weaponized for the sordid aims and ideals of a greedy few (bad actors). Big up Claude Shannon.

nice Chemtrails near the sun all blocked out with pollution in the opening of video



This video single-handledly destroys the fairy tale called evolution. It elegantly illustrates the fact that information must conform to the laws of physics. This in turn denies the possibility that information can create order out of chaos without intelligent intervention rendering the "big bang" theory impossible. The Law of Information debunks evolution at the very conception of the concept. Thus, evolution is nothing more than a still-born bastard. Evolution is extinct even before it is conceived.
