Cosmological consequences of a finite truth machine

  1. Apr 13, 2005 #1
    Consider a source which communicates either 1.) truth, or 2.) neither truth nor falsehood. How would this information affect the physics in its neighborhood - that is, could any known physical object conform to its signature?

    What would a general description be for a universe generated by a finite truth machine like the above? Would quantum mechanics (perhaps with the addition of absolute falsehoods) or relativity (recall Bekenstein binary black holes) be suited to model a space created from such logic?

    Do such books as the Bible, Koran or Torah similarly attempt to represent a truth machine to the faithful?
