Information is food!!

JP Rangaswami – innovator and chief information officer for many leading financial businesses likes to think that food and information are the same thing and that energy and data are similar.

He believes that monkeys can learn faster than humans because their brains are larger and their stomachs are smaller; not like humans. The tissues covering our brains and stomachs are the most expensive tissues for the nervous and digestive systems, therefore they can expand quickly and grow depending on the consumption inside. What JP said in a recent talk was that our brain tissue will expand as we consume energy – just as much as our stomach tissue when we eat a big meal. Therefore information is food!
