Yes but if we're talking about the maximum about of information that can
fit inside a sphere then we already know what M must be in the above
formula, it's the amount of matter needed to form a Black Hole of radius
R, and the formula for that is
M= c^2/2G *R
,
where G is the gravitation constant and c is the speed of light that is
also a constant
. S
tick
ing
the two formulas together and you get
I = (a constant) * R^2.
So t
he maximum information inside a sphere is proportional to the sphere's
surface area not its volume.
So the information isn't really in the sphere it's on the sphere.
It almost make me think that one of our 3 dimensions
is
phony.
