How anything, at all, ever, could 'require' information, is beyond me.
What patterns _are_ created through the elemental and primal forces of
the big bang, by definition, can be analyzed to _provide_ information (to
information-using entities), but the processes of this creation and even
the patterns themselves in no way _require_ any information.
Perhaps I'm lost, but this classification of information as a necessary
and sufficient property of the universe seems specious to me.
