That may be not enough. suppose that you are starving, and you receive

Usually the study of information and the measure of it make many
assumptions that made it incomplete. My idea is that it is not only
the decoding, but the decrease in entropy that the receiver experiment.
Such as the above example?
That include the decoding + the course of actions that the receiver
takes with this information. I the case of the starving person, first
it experiment a reduction in stress that reduces the muscular activity
and the heat produces, instead it follow a ordered set of actions

Given n number of possible strings and m possible TMs... the mind
boggles! We are machines, very sophisticated, but machines nonetheless
and doubly so!

What is the difference between a random sequence of bits and a
meaningful message? The correct decryption scheme.
