Information is as close as we can get to the foundation of reality when treating the reality of the universe as a lab environment, but it’s not necessarily the foundation of reality.
Reading about sex (past), describing sex (future), having sex (present).
Reading about and describing is information.
Having is also information but it’s information of a different kind.
That information of a different kind is “Wow, the Universe is amazing!” but not the words but rather our awareness of participation in it, while participating.
