This is good, but even better, I think, is this: information is form,
and form is information. There are good linguistic (as well as other)
reasons for this, as explained at
under "Information and Reality". The implications of this way of
thinking for memetics are tackled under "Information and Life", but as
admitted there, this is not yet fully developed. ("Information and
Reality" isn't quite right yet either -- I'll leave the detailing of its
imperfections as an exercise for the reader! :-)
