The states of a computing system bear information and change time, while its events bear time and change information.

The most promising transformational logic seems to us to be Girard’s linear logic.

One thought on “The Duality of Time and Information”
States and Events, per Pratt, are Stone Duals. This way of thinking might allow for a reconstruction of physics that sees particles as the topological spaces that are duals to theories (when representable as logical algebras).
