It is more than that. The All is all information.

I try to make it as generalized as I can but there is the limits of an
unavoidable inside perspective.

The All and the Nothing are nearly identical in that they both contain no
information since all information is equivalent to having no information.

The only left over issue is the defining information for each and this is
the same [they are a definitional pair] and so it too sums to no
information. The result is a zero information system that allows computer
simulations [noisy ones] of some multiverses and a rationale for a dynamic
i.e. the computers run.
