Time-reversed information transmission
- 35 Downloads
Tolman's paradox forbidding time-reversed information transmission is nonexistent and rests only on our ingrained thought processes involving hidden, unnecessary assumptions. When the assumption of a passive channel is removed, the paradox cannot be derived and information can flow intermittently or nondeterministically from the future over a simple computer with at least one independent decision-making component.
