I defined information as "difference acknowledged" (by no specified
acknowledger) because not all information DO make a difference, yet an
unrecognized difference is no information.
With the Plenitude (a version as the basis for my narrative leading to our
universe) I have a question: Is "no information" not an information?
(Or: is "no difference" an information about identicity?)
