Every Book

There is no known law of nature, no known process, and no known sequence of events which can cause information to originate by itself in matter. — Prof. Dr. Werner Gitt

Dr. Werner Gitt, a professor at the German Federal Institute of Physics and Technology, expressed much the same thought: “All experiences show that every piece of creative information represents some mental effort, and can be traced to a personal idea-giver, who exercised his own free will, and who is endowed with an intelligent mind. … There is no known law of nature, no known process, and no known sequence of events, which can cause information to originate by itself in matter.”

It would be a mistake, for example, to define a book only by the paper, ink and binding it is made of. Beyond these materials themselves it is the information it contains that makes it a book.

It is information which separates a volume of the Encyclopedia Britannica from a “book” formed by randomly arranged letters like Akpekruvlu. Both have paper, ink, and binding, but one has information, while the other does not. The source of the information is the author of that book, a person having a mind and a consciousness. It’s undeniable that the information in that book was placed there by an intelligent mind. Another important point to consider: The mind comes prior to the material elements, and it decides how to use them. A book initially appears in the mind of the author. The author makes logical connections and forms ideas and sentences.

We stand on the edge of one more major leap in our understanding of the universe. One of many indications for the need of radical re-formulation is the fact that in our current understanding, most of the universe seems to consist of something we know next to nothing about. All our knowledge about physics, however, is based on ordinary energy/matter, which makes up less than 5% of what we know as the universe. — Prof. Dr. Gordana Dodig-Crnkovic

In the second stage, he gives these ideas a material form. By using a pen, a typewriter, a recorder, or a computer, he turns the information contained within his mind into words, paragraphs, and pages. Later these words go to a printing or digital house, and they make up a book or eBook.

Therefore, we can conclude that if matter includes information, then that material has been prearranged by a mind that processed the information. The mind existed first, and that mind produced the material form of that information in a unique design.

And stop assuming an outward expression that does not come from within you and is not representative of what you are in your inner being, but is patterned after this age; but change your outward expression to one that comes from within and is representative of your inner being, by the renewing of your mind, resulting in your putting to the test what is the will of God, the good and well pleasing, and complete will, and having found that it meets specifications, placing your approval upon it. (Kenneth Wuest’s translation)  — The Bible, Romans 12:2
