Is there any system in the universe that is information less, I.e., has or possesses no physical information.

For example if I have a system of particles and if I throw this system into a black hole(BH), I can access the information of the system as long as the system is outside the event horizon, but once it is inside the BH, I can never obtain or retrieve any information about it; but this doesn't imply that the system of particles has become an information-less system. Classically, a black hole is independent of its past history.How does the information of the quantum state of the infalling particles re-emerge in the outgoing radiation?

Hawking in this paper says that:

Polchinski recently used a shock wave approximation to calculate the shift on a gen- erator of the horizon caused by an ingoing wave packet. Even though the calculation may require some corrections, this shows in principle that the ingoing particles determine a supertranslation of the black hole horizon. This in turn, will determine varying delays in the emission of wave packets. The information about the ingoing particles is returned, but in a highly scrambled, chaotic and useless form. This resolves the information paradox. For all practical purposes, however, the information is lost.

Is there any other example of a system possessing no information?

    $\begingroup$ I can think of 1 "system" possessing no information, but this is not the place for politics. Seriously I think you should include a definition of information in your post. $\endgroup$ – user108787 Nov 22 '16 at 18:33
  • $\begingroup$ @Lol! Yeah,thanks! I have edited and provided a link which aims to define what I mean by information. $\endgroup$ – Naveen Balaji Nov 22 '16 at 18:38

Information is inherant for any system, even a one particle system, as it pertains to relationship not only to Self but to Any other members of the set. There are no non informational systems.
