Revisiting your question...Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! Is the question if the universe stores information, IOW, does the universe have memory, other than a direct self-reference to the immediate causality of an "effect"? Seems to me that a "measurement" is not measurement of stored information in the fabric of spacetime itself but only of "present" value (potential) information of an object in the universe. It occurred to me that looking back in time is not looking at a memory at all. What we observe is the final destination of an observable past "current event". The information of that current event may take millions of years to arrive at the point of observation, but does that make it a "memory", i.e a recall of stored information? But then I think about David Bohm's experiment of "enfolding" (storing) and "unfolding" (recalling) "stored" (memorized) information as he demonstrated with the Taylor-Couette "laminar flow" glycerine experiment . Does this mean that light propagates in a laminar flow? OTOH, in space most all "flow" is turbulent and too complex to be able to store information which can be recalled.
