With his concept of Active Information, Bohm had introduced what could be thought of a new triad into physics in place of the old duality of Energy-Matter. In Energy-Matter duality, energy acts on matter to transform it. For example it may melt a piece of metal, or it may cause a stone to move.
Now add in information to form Energy-Matter-Information. Information, as active information, observes the disposition of Matter and now acts on Energy to redirect it. This redirected Energy makes a new transformation of Matter and in turn this is observed by Information which acts back on Energy.
