Dear Jerry, At the risk of being jailed by Pedro, let me point to the beauty of the example: >From a molecular biological perspective, the assertion of “same encoding” of >information is contrary to fact. OK: the coding of the information is species specific; both theoretically and

That is one limited way to think of information . It is reasonably precise, which is an advantage. But ignores and in fact rules out other usages that share important basic properties, suggesting a unified notion that goes well beyond the narrow usage you prefer, Krassimir. John Collier

Dear Marcus and FIS Colleagues, You are right in your complaint. We have been saying very similar things concerning information generation--and also in your symbolic introduction of Darwin in your scheme concerning that series of complementary questions. Sorry for being so brief but I need

Hi Alex, I am reviewing FIS posts from the last months – earlier, I was traveling. I was also at the TSC conference, so it is a shame we did not meet and chat (I presented a workshop with the guys from Google on Quantum Computing and AI). It was also nice to see Søren there. On your note to
