Our mission

The Information Physics Institute (IPI) brings together researchers, academics, business leaders, and members of the public interested in advancing our collective understanding of the fundamental role of “information” in the universe. 

The IPI is an international initiative operating as a research organization. Our core objective is to stimulate and support research in the physics of information, leading to fundamental developments, applications, commercialization and the emergence of a new field in physics called Information Dynamics, or Infodynamics. 

We are interested in all aspects of information research: 

Recognising the true physical nature of information, we examine the physical and environmental implications of our present digital big data era, and we aim to offer solutions to companies interested in estimating, optimising and reducing their environmental digital data footprint and associated costs.

Experiment for testing the simulation hyphothesis

One of the great mysteries of the world is to understand the nature of our reality, consciousness, and the meaning of life. 

There is a growing community of scientists and academics that has concluded, via scientific and philosophical means, that our world and the entire universe might be a simulation. If this is indeed the case, then what sort of experiments could we deploy from within the simulation to prove this hypothesis? 

The recent work on the mass-energy-information (M/E/I) equivalence principle offers a possible avenue to experiment with this. Assuming the universe is indeed a simulation, then it must contain a lot of bits hidden everywhere around us. Detecting these information bits will prove the simulation hypothesis. The M/E/I principle states that these bits must have a small mass ( Another recent article gave the number of possible information bits contained in all elementary particles ( Finally, a 2022 publication proposed an experiment to test these predictions (

Among other research projects, IPI's prime objective is to perform this experiment, and a few other non-disclosed experimental ideas that will unlock these mysteries. In order to perform the experiments, we need to purchase the necessary equipment and research time.
