By Shannon's information theory, everything is bits of information. Completely irrelevant for the mechanism of a Turing Machine is, who writes the initial bits on the tape.

It's the old fallacy seeing the brain as a computer, since we've build computers after structures from our brains. Hence I wondered, what more there should be.
