Information, creation and the Hindu text, the Vedanta-sutra

On the 'Information and Religion' theme:
The big issue, even for cosmologists today, is whether or not that primordial state contained some of the information needed for the appearance and development of the cosmos. And where did that information come from: From chaos? Or, from an infinite regression of information leaking from previous universes.

Vedanta argues that useful information most likely has a sentient source, and that Brahman, is conscious energy in its “purest” state. Physical matter is transformed by the passage of time. But Brahman exists before time and is therefore timeless, eternal.
