By extension, every elementary particle must carry around enough information to produce the entire universe. I find that difficult to believe. “


” The idea of combining the physics of modern particle theory with cosmology was very young when I started working on cosmology. “


” If there’s no limit to how big the entropy can get, then you can start anywhere, and from that starting point, you’d expect entropy to rise as the system moves to explore larger and larger regions of phase space. “
