actually quite a lot of intellectuals do believe that there is more to this universe than what we see. We just dont believe what religion teaches us.
We dont need a religion to get along, have common values and other such nonsense that religion teaches people. We can have all that without a
religion. Science however gives us facts something that can be tested in the lab and be replicated by others. IF its not replicated then someones gone
wrong in the maths. Maths can be seen to be cold but maths is the language of the universe and the universe itself is made up from that language. That
does include consciousness which makes us aware. At the very heart of our universe lies as what the OP had said is information only science can
unravel what this information is trying to tell us about the universe. I think most people dont realise is that what we know about the universe and
its mathematical makeup does not truely explain everything. How for example does dead matter come to life?
TO give another exsample lets suppose we can shrink a scientist to the size of a bacteria and we put that scientist inside the body of someone. The
scientists now travels through this body and derives mathematical formulas based on what he sees. The question that is to be asked is this; given all
the maths he has done could he say with 100% accuracy that he was inside the body of a living conscious sentient being?.
IT is true we cant fully understand the universe using the western paradigm and there does seem to be a shift to an eastern paradigm especially when
it comes to quantum.
Sorry to be slighly off topic but it had to be said.
