One of the things I’ve studied with fascination is vagueness and an interesting thing emerges with vagueness: vague is a range.
I’ve somewhat turned away from “information is never created or destroyed” over the years – and it was a bit of a difficult shift that I didn’t want to make.
I have seen scant evidence of information’s infinite status but much of the opposite. I want to believe that aspect of information theory, which is related to the information theory notion of entropy that’s similar but distinct from the thermodynamic entropy – but it’s been a hard belief to hang onto.
well, it’s your ontology (the information science meaning of the word). I’m working on mine as well and I think with any of the good ones, the various ontologies will line up on the major points and it’ll probably be possible to match up subtle areas when globbing them together in different ways between systems of thought, although I don’t know if any will cover all by itself but perhaps sliding from one to another as needed may work.
