the relationship between physical and nonphysical

The idea that information can alter the brain fascinates me. In this observation we once again see the connection between physical matter and a nonphysical entity such as information. How can something that is not physical impose change on something that is? It seems as if the two are of different dimensions and I cannot understand how the interaction between these two is made possible. This brings me back to the question of how consciousness arises from physical matter, which also addresses this idea of how the physical and nonphysical interact.
