    mad dawg: ... as you properly know, information is a theoretical construct used to analyse and describe the world. As such i can only offer a set of definitions that roughly translate into "information". it is not a uniquely defined term no less than "integration" or "function norm". and i did write this at least once...

    however, if you see "information" in a scientific article you can be allmost certain it is shannon information.

    you can pick whichever definition of information you like -- any attempt to model the information content in a gene will show it increase through evolution, unless the model is extremely degenerate.

    Are you saying that you had Shannon in mind when you said that evolution produces information?

    mad dawg: yes. he is the founder of information theory, and "information" allmost allways refer to shannon information if not used with a qualifier.

    not that it say a lot about the feasibility for evolution to create a human (which i have allready noted). information theory is quite orthogonal to that question.
