Abstract. The birth of a universe is described as having two main stages: a) a phenomenological informational process that generates the fundamental phenomenological information of the universe; b) an informational—energetic process which produces the structural universe. It is shown that the laws of the universe have a semantic origin, producing a cellular universe, both at the phenomenological and structural levels.
