I got this from ChuNalt's signature. I was thinking that it was self-explanitory, but the more though I put into it, the more I actually wanted to know the truth. So, here's the question...

So, does data actually produce a physical weight? Because the head of the disk must actually "write," something. So when it writes data to a hard drive, does it actually produce physical weight somewhere on the hard drive? Or is it just magnitized particles or something?
Also, how does somethign know how to make, store, edit, and write data? Better yet, what IS data, and how does it get processed?
