  1. Personally, I am close to the point of view that was developed by Soviet philosophers, for example, I. B. Novik, B. S. Ukraintsev.
    These Marxist philosophers consider information to be a special case of the more general concept of reflection. Reflection is a universal property of matter. Reflection is something like the ability of some objects to retain “traces” from interaction with other objects, “traces” that indicate the properties of the object that left them. There is nothing mystical about the reflection property, it is the result of physical processes. Information is a special case of reflection: signals and letters reflect some objective reality. Information belongs to the physical world and does not exist separately from its carriers, reflection carriers.
    Information differs from reflection in general in that information is associated with cybernetic systems. Not every reflection is information (although it can potentially be). And, in addition, what will be information for one receiver will not be information for another: that is, it depends on the receiver whether some semantic aspect will be extracted from, for example, a set of signals

  2. From the point of view of what philosophy?Or in relation to whom/ what?Information is a stream of meaningful (understood at this stage of personality development) perception , which is transformed into the provable (truth)or in the unprovable (theory), serves as a source of reflection, experience and knowledge, if it was not: isolated – removed (segregatio )by the brain, as something unnecessary and garbage
