We hypothesize possible new types of forces that would be the result of new types of interactions, static and a slow transient, between objects with related information contents (pattern). Such mechanism could make material composition dependence claimed by Fishbach, et al. in Eotvos type experiments plausible. We carried out experiments by using a high-resolution scale with the following memories: USB-2 flash drives (1-16GB), DVD and CD disks to determine if such an interaction exist… Expand
Does information have mass? [Point of View]
TLDR
This article addresses the fundamental question of minimum mass related to a bit of information from the angles of quantum physics and special relativity, and refers to experiments on the weight transient of memory devices after information writing and erasure. Expand
Does Information Have Mass
Does information have mass? This question has been asked many times and there are many answers even on the Internet, including on Yahoo Answers. Usually the answer is “no”. Attempts have been made toExpand
On the possibility of transferring information with non-electromagnetic fields, the relation of spinning processes and encoding information and the hydrogen spin detector
This paper considers the similar physical actions of spinning electric fields and the information imprinted in special carriers. Both the spinning fields and the information have a commonExpand
THE MASS OF A BIT OF INFORMATION AND THE BRILLOUIN'S PRINCIPLE
Based on the Brillouin (negentropic) principle, we answer to the question: Does information have mass? The obtained answer is affirmative and the mass associated to a bit of information (which isExpand
Landauer Principle and General Relativity
TLDR
The physical relevance of the Landauer principle is illustrated applying it to different important issues concerning the theory of gravitation. Expand
Information-Probabilistic Description of the Universe
We describe the universe as a single entangled ensemble of quantum particles. The total entropy of this world ensemble, which can be expressed as a sum of information, thermodynamic and entanglementExpand

TLDR
The estimates here point to another singularity event for the authors' planet, called the Information Catastrophe, which will account for more than half of the Earths mass, according to the mass energy information equivalence principle. Expand
Quantised Inertia and Galaxy Rotation from Information
The theory of quantised inertia (QI) can predict galaxy rotations without dark matter. It is shown here that QI can be derived from Landauer’s principle by assuming that bits of information areExpand

The Newtonian gravitational constant: recent measurements and related studies
Improvements in our knowledge of the absolute value of the Newtonian gravitational constant, G, have come very slowly over the years. Most other constants of nature are known (and some evenExpand
Determination of the gravitational constant with a lake experiment: New constraints for non-Newtonian gravity.
TLDR
The gravitational constant G has been determined at two effective interaction distances 88 m and 112 m, respectively and new constraints on the strength and range of a composition-independent fifth force are set. Expand

Geophysical measurements of the gravitational constant and a recent reexamination of experiments performed early in the century on the equivalence of inertial and gravitational mass may have providedExpand
The arguments against ``antigravity'' and the gravitational acceleration of antimatter
Abstract In the 1950's interest arose in the science-fiction idea of “antigravity”. This concept was a speculation that matter and antimatter would repel each other in ordinary tensor (Einsteinian)Expand
Experiments on gravitation
The theoretical setting of the experimental study of gravitation is indicated and a brief account is given of experiments on gravitation from Newton onwards. The main content of the review comprisesExpand
Six years of the fifth force
The enunciation of the 'fifth force' hypothesis in 1986 spawned a generation of experiments searching for deviations from newtonian gravity. Although no compelling evidence for any new weak forcesExpand

The standard quantum teleportation scheme is deconstructed, and those aspects of it that appear remarkable and "non-classical" are identified. An alternative teleportation scheme, involving onlyExpand
