Bekenstein derived the formula for the maximum energy content of a given volume of space by considering forming a black hole from particles each containing one bit of information.
Actually what is meant is that the black hole is formed by patches of space, each patch with bit of information determining the existence of a particle in that bit of space.
So why does it only have a bit of info per particle, since particles can have different properties. Also there is the positional or relational information between bits of space.
So this assumption makes no sense to me, and yet it conforms with hawking theorem for BH thermodynamics.
What information am I missing here :)
