We discuss possible new principles of information processing by utilizing microscopic, semi-microscopic and macroscopic phenomena occuring in nature. We first discuss quantum mechanical universal information processing in microscopic world governed by quantum mechanics, and then we discuss superconducting phenomena in a mesoscopic system, especially an information processing system using flux quantum. Finally, we discuss macroscopic self-organizing phenomena in biology and suggest possibility of self-organizing devices.
