The highly organized objects, they refer to, correspond exactly to the 
complete subgraphs I was talking about. In this sense perhaps yes - the 
chaotic are not empty sometimes in a precise sense :)

I unfortunately do not have much background in information or chaos 
theory but I am interested in it too. I googled a paper that may be of 
interest to you because except chaos and information theory it also 
refers to Kolmogorov's algorithmic complexity (algorithmic entropy). 
However, they are more concerned with measuring information and entropy 
of finite strings (with a possible application to data compression):
Deterministic Chaos and Information Theory (Mark R. Titchener, Werner

What kind of patterns you mean?

I unfortunately don't. Kolmogorov complexity reminds me only of neural 
networks and complexity of their learning .    (02)
