Star Trek and the Internet

This may seem a large span to bridge, but there was a unique concept of disassembly and reassembly In Star Trek that the internet converged to, if it didn’t copy it out right…

“Beam me up” presumed not only that matter and energy were equivalent, but that information, the organization of matter and energy, could be disassembled and reassembled as well.

The internet has proved the point for information. Every email, text, or twitter we send is immediately decomposed and spread across the entire grid; to be reassembled only where it is desired. Casting seeds to the wind.

Matter and energy are not cooperating just yet. Information has no mass, and therefore infinite energy. Information is high energy of position…high entropy.
