Information Science Reading...
We might argue that in the course of
evolution those organisms were most
successful that were responsive to the
widest range of stimulus energies in
their environment. In order to survive
in a constantly fluctuating world, it was
better to have a little information about
a lot of things than to have a lot of information
about a small segment of the
environment. If a compromise was necessary,
the one we seem to have made is
clearly the more adaptive.
