Salvador, quoting an article:
|Moreover the information incompressibility of [Chatin’s Algorithmic Information Theory] AIT is related to the “irreducible complexity” concept (IC).|
Chaitin's "irreducible complexity" means algorithmic incompressibility, which means that X cannot be generated by a program shorter than X. ID's IC has at least 3 definitions, all of which have to do with functionality and evolvability through RM+NS. Am I stupid for not seeing how they're meaningfully related?
Question for IDers: According to algorithmic information theory, which of the following is irreducibly complex?
1) A bacterial flagellum
2) A random pile of atoms from which a flagellum is made
