Information to be gained from the measurement of observables in many areas of physics can be represented by the concatenation of Hermitian, pseudo-Hermitian, and real qubits to form a quantal analogs of the tape of a Turing machine. There is a distinction between selected information, which is in principle predictable, and unselected information, which is indeterminate. Qubits and tapes are subject to transformations which may be used to convert them to selected form. It is shown how to represent information derived from quantum mechanics, quantum statistics, particle physics, and cosmology in this way.
