I can’t agree with the Bo idea, information requires either/or energy and matter, without it then it simply cannot exist.<quoted text>
In a sense, it IS both. In that it exists as brain states in our heads.
But in the sense that Bo is using it, it doesn't exist. "Information" is completely independent from both energy and matter.
He's about to find out the hard way.
The brain is matter requiring energy to work
Or perhaps the ROM/RAM (of whatever type) that is matter and needs energy to twiddle the bits, etc.
