  1. Information is the replacement of some objects or events by others (most often significantly more compact) that can lead to similar consequences in a similar environment. For example, we replace a live lion with a lion's roar, and a roar with some symbol, and so on. If you burn a book, the connection between the book as a set of substitutes and the events that these substitutes were supposed to evoke in the reader's mind disappears. Ashes will no longer cause the same effects that letters put together in words and sentences could cause. Although the mass of matter seems to have been preserved. Exactly the same effect will be obtained if you give a book to an illiterate or not proficient in this language. Because the environment (the head) is fundamentally different.

  2. Information belongs to the ideal category, in which other laws apply that differ from the physical laws of the material category.
    In particular, the laws of conservation (energy, momentum) apply in physics, but there is no law of conservation of information.Moreover, this law is neither proven nor disproved. However, if we assume that there is a certain higher dimension in which there is access to any point in the time of our reality, then in this case no information can be destroyed. Personally, I'm leaning towards this idea.
