It seems that you are saying that information is only information to a
"recognizer" of such. If this is so, how do we define such? As to the notion
of "no information" as information, this seems to fall under the definition
of "counterfactuals". (Hal Ruhl might have a thought to add to this.)
I remember reading somewhere that the fact that no detection event
occurring in a QM situation is still an informative event. I believe that
the so-called "non-demolition" measurements are related. Any thoughts?
