Dear Karl,

>the general concept of information, specifically in a biologic context.
The concept of information, defined specifically in a biological context 
is for that very reason not the general concept of information. This 
confusion does not help for the understanding. In economics, for 
example, one should not work with a biological concept of information.

Information can be measured in bits and bytes. I have not heard a single 
argument in this discussion of how the biological theorizing leads to 
(proposals for) the measurement of information. Without the beginning of 
an operationalization, the theory remains a pure philosophy. I don't 
think that one should go for a biological philosophy, including social 
darwinism etc.
