Abstract: In The Philosophy of Information (2011 book), Luciano Floridi presents an ontological theory of Being qua Being, which he calls «Informational Structural Realism», a theory which applies, he says, to every possible world. He identifies primordial information («dedomena») as the foundation of any structure in any possible world. The present essay examines Floridi’s defense of that theory, as well as his refutation of «Digital Ontology» (which some people might confuse with his own). Then, using Floridi’s ontology as a starting point, the present essay adds quantum features to dedomena, yielding an ontological theory for our own universe, Quantum Informational Structural Realism, which provides a metaphysical interpretation of key quantum phenomena, and diminishes the «weirdness» or «spookiness» of quantum mechanics. Key Words: digital ontology, dedomena, structural realism, quantum information, primordial qubit
