Have I been meditating too much?

This passage from a backgrounder I was just reading for work seems alive with spiritual meaning.
Discovery is the pre-trial phase in a lawsuit in which each party through the law of civil procedure can request documents and other evidence from other parties. Electronic discovery, or “e-discovery,” refers to discovery which deals with information in electronic form. E-discovery poses new challenges and opportunities for the courts, the legal community, and their clients. Electronic evidence differs from physical evidence because of its intangible form, volume, transience, and persistence. Additionally, electronic informaiton is commonly accompanied by meta-data which itself has evidential weight.
Bolding mine.
Oh, Sariputra, Form Does not Differ From the Void,
And the Void Does Not Differ From Form.
Form is Void and Void is Form;
The Same is True For Feelings,
Perceptions, Volitions and Consciousness.
Sariputra, the Characteristics of the
Voidness of All Dharmas
Are Non-Arising, Non-Ceasing, Non-Defiled,
Non-Pure, Non-Increasing, Non-Decreasing.
Does electronic information have the Buddha nature?

It certainly sounds like electronic information has Buddha-nature. Which only makes sense, really. It's as real as anything else. And it's created by human beings, who definitely have Buddha-nature.

Damn you, getting me caught up in your existential web of... sentences I can't finish!
