Information Is Nonmaterial

"The genetic information system is is the software of life and, like the symbols in a computer, it is purely symbolic and independent of its environment. Of course, the genetic message, when expressed as a sequence of symbols, is nonmaterial but must be recorded in matter and energy."

Hubert Yockey, Information Theory, Evolution, and the Origin of Life, p. 7
