This notion of using channel capacity from Claude Shannon’s original information theory as causal emergence for treating macroscale as a “map is better than the territory” is compelling. I feel as if I should try to poke holes in it, as it basically is akin to (for example) “turbulence in a pipe” being treated as “pipe operating to capacity”, changing the question – yet that shift is nevertheless very powerful. https://www.mdpi.com/1099-4300/19/5/188/htm
