I probably used the words "not empty" because I had just read Ramsey's
Theorem stated in terms of systems with objects "within" them in this
definition I found on the Web:    (03)

"No matter how jumbled and chaotic you try to arrange certain objects,
you will find yourself creating a very highly organized and structured
object within it."

I don't know how chaos is regarded in information theory.    (06)

I'm backing into all of this from the kinds of patterns we see when we
try to learn classes from flat text. From this point of view a link
between chaos theory and Kolmogorov complexity makes sense, but I
don't know how it is seen in either field.    (07)

If you have any theoretical perspectives they would be very welcome.    (08)
