Frequently you revolve about question which can be formulated as: "There IS plenty of knowledge in the universe, and we, humans just keep discovering it. So there MUST be somewhere a SOURCE or at least a HOLDER (memory of sort) of this knowledge. And HERE god (or methaphysics, or subconsciouseness, etc.) comes handy."

No, we know that due to 3-dimensionality of space and due to quantum nature of interactions of bosons, the result is inverse square law for momentum exchange - what we call force (for gravity and e/magnetic interaction which results from boson exchange).

Now is the question. We know that inverse square law is "out there". Do we need a HOLDER for it? Does it have to be engraved in some divine CD ROM to work?

So, why should information obey "conservation law" so to speak? There is no underlying principle (like symmetry) to make such law. Information can be created and distroyed.

Therefore, there is no need in having it pre-recorded in mysterious divine tape recorder or holy books to explain how mammals or primates are accumulating it.
