Abstract: We discuss the possibility of a relativistic relationship between information and entropy, closely analogous to the classical Maxwell electro-magnetic wave equations. Inherent to the analysis is the description of information as residing in points of non-analyticity; yet ultimately also exhibiting a distributed characteristic: additionally analogous, therefore, to the wave-particle duality of light. At cosmological scales our vector differential equations predict conservation of information in black holes, whereas regular- and Z-DNA molecules correspond to helical solutions at microscopic levels. We further propose that regular- and Z-DNA are equivalent to the alternative words chosen from an alphabet to maintain the equilibrium of an information transmission system.
