Yes, I agree. Landauer proved that information is physical.

Yes I dispute that. Information and energy are related but they are not
equivalent. Energy and Momentum are also physical and there is a simple
formula to translate one into the other, but they are not equivalent,
that's why we need 2 different words for them. They are 2 different things.

There is no "might" about it. Landauer's limit is not important to
biologists period.
