Fixed that for you. Why should you expect the different types of
information that come from different contexts to have the same
numerical value? The whole point of "On complexity and emergence" is
that notions of information and entropy are complete context sensitive
(that is not to say their subjective as such - people agreeing on the
context will agree on the numerical values).
