This question might rather be posted in Biology but since the information paradox is usually the subject of black hole physics I thought physicists may be better placed to answer it. The fact that information may be lost in black holes is considered a paradox, information is believed to be conserved by a conservation law. Now living beings (let's take a human brain as the extreme example) accumulate a great deal of information during their lifetime, that's what brains do, process and generate information. When the brain dies all that information is presumably lost. Does this present a paradox in a similar sense as the black holes case? I know the information paradox in black holes refers to the information regarding quantum states while the information generated by a brain is probably of a different nature.
