Any set of particles implies more than the sum of its parts, or the sums of any subset of its parts.

Any set of particles implies the beginning of the universe to some degree of specificity.

Discuss.

This model described above, which is roughly as close to a consensus as there is in the field right now, predicts that that means a single, unified experience extending over the entire universe, tenuous in most locations only relative to the explosions of information (us) which burst into life wherever matter gathers long enough. Unless any holes are poked in the math, and I think anything that passes muster will look much like it, this is what the media will present to the masses as reality in five years or so. Psychiatrists will receive it in their manuals, and it will be applied on every level of society just like any other advance in medicine or electrical engineering.

The crows are coming home to roost.
