Yes. There’s information, and the experience thereof. .

Yes. There’s information

Information isn't some metaphysical substance, information doesn't exist as a thing in itself. Everything can be used as information or perceived as information, because information is not a thing, it's an abstract concept which is derived from perceiving actual things.

Side: No

I know it’s not a thing, it’s not material. It relies on material, but it is not material itself. It’s still real. Which means there is more to reality than the physical/material.

If you think it’s not real, try not using clocks anymore. Information exists in reality.

Wrong question is being asked. The Yes side represents the lesser of two evils, so that’s where I will put my opinion.

Reality is a composition of all that there is, as opposed to is there more, to imply reality is lacking.

The five human senses perceive a subset of reality. Technology has enhanced this perception. However there are other beings in the universe which technology and the five human senses may not perceive unless you the individual tap into the power of God or Satan.

I mean no. Information and the experience thereof is strictly physical.

THey are literally the only two honest people here. They said so. And every time someone has thought they were wrong, it turned out those people were just dishonest (and a host of other bad things). So if they say you’re wrong, just go with it. Otherwise you’re a liar.

No. If you removed all the matter and energy from the universe you would still be left with a universe which has laws. Those fundamental laws represent an example of information which is not physical, yet nevertheless must exist in order for the universe to adhere to them.

Side: Yes

Those laws, which are information, are properties of the physical universe. Gravity, for example, does not exist in a universe devoid of mass.
