Sorry Ben, but I snipped most of your post, but that is because I agree with
you.  This is where you address the question:

"Even if it's purely in the form of patterns of energy (if that's possible),
it's still embodiment of information."

Yes definitely. I cannot see it otherwise. (Hayles is speaking from
postmodernist rhetoric, much like Don Ihde and Jean-Pierre Duprey.)
