Along the line of Jorge Luis Borges a blackboard covered in chalk
contains the library of Babel (everything) but no information. Similarly
a white board covered with ink also contains no information.
Interestingly, information is minimized or actually goes to zero when
the world is too large as the plenitude, or too small. Information is
maximized when the world is neither too large nor too small. We live in
a Goldilock world.
