Does information exist independently of the living world?
Information exists in human society: production, science, culture, communication, science, etc. In living nature (except society), information exists in living objects and their activities (memory, feelings, communication, DNA, etc.). But if we take inanimate objects, if they exist separately from living objects and are not connected with them in any way. For example, stars, planets, meteorites, minerals, molecules, atoms, elementary particles, quarks. Do they contain any information? For example, a meteorite fell on an uninhabited planet. I left a crater on it. It seems that there are traces of interaction that can be used as information. But if there are no living beings, let alone intelligent ones, who can somehow detect this, then can we assume that there is any information here? Can information appear in other more complex objects, such as organic molecules that exist independently of the living world?
