1. My take on the self-regulatory function emotion suggests that the dual
 “purposes” of self-preservation and adaptive self-development (both
mediated by Negative ~ Positive categories of emotions) are rooted in *ancient
information signaling and memory systems*.
2. Is any subjectivity involved in information processing? At what point is
it purely mechanical?
3. And once again, where does the *semantic value* enter the picture?
Not-self pathogens? Too hot, too cold?

None of these questions are dealt with in terms of digital information in
organisms of any kind. Organisms treat them in terms of 'Experience
Information', which is entirely different, being based on naturally
occurring Instabilities in organism response systems, which cannot support
Digital Information (for obvious reasons), and which are present to enable
the organism to satisfy the requirements of Fractal Physiology.
