* A recurring theme in the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series - ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' and ''DevilSurvivor2'' in particular - is the concept that ''everything'' ultimately boils down to data. This is implied to be how [[spoiler: the Embryon were first reincarnated into the simulated world of the Junkyard]], and linked with the notion of the AkashicRecords to explain how [[spoiler: Polaris is systematically destroying the world - and how it can be restored afterwards]].

* In ''{{Dune}}'', a distrans is a device for producing a temporary neural imprint on the nervous system of bats or birds. The creature's normal cry then carries the message imprint which can be sorted from that carrier wave by another distrans. In other words, it implants a message into the animal which can be later read in its normal vocalization, sort of like a modern-day telephone/radio scrambler.
