Would a perfectly ordered crystal in an isolated system with no temperature be able to store information that can be used to predict the future of that system? I am asking this question with the Big Bang in mind: intuitively, it appears to me that at the beginning of the universe there should be extremely high degree of order, but if the universe was perfectly uniform, why are there asymmetry today? If a perfectly uniform object is blown up like the universe, I don't see any reason why it shouldn't expand into a sphere uniform on all sides. Assuming a deterministic universe, would it be possible to derive information from a perfectly uniform initial state? Or is the complexity of the universe today a result of quantum mechanism's non-determinism?
