I am not sure i am arguing this very well, but am pretty sure i am correct.
You're right in the first instance and wrong in the second one. This means it wasn't argued very well and it isn't correct.
Information has to be a dimenson and many within the circles of Information Theory see information as the fundamental property of reality.
This is because space and time evolve into infinity at Planck's length and Planck's Constant respectively. This doesn't occur with information at
the level of Qubits.
At the end of the day, you can't do anything without information.
If you're going to a restaurant across town, you need 3 things.
The location of the restaurant (space)
How long it takes to get to the restaurant (time)
How to get to the restaraunt through maps or GPS (information)
Information actually encompasses all three things.
I know materialist want to think that matter somehow created information after bumping into itself over time, but that's a silly notion that should
be laughed at.
Just like a seed contains information about the plant before it grows, so did the seed of our universe which was smaller than an atom 13.7 billion
years ago, contain all of the information about our universe.
Information didn't evolve over time. Matter and energy evolved over time according to the laws of information. There's nothing new under the Sun. So
the information to build a TV set or a DVD player was present in that seed 13.7 billion years ago. It just took time for this information to manifest.
