Also, Bill is attracted because the guy likes to say stuff that sounds heavy, but is really all gas: "... Throughout evolution, information capable of maintaining its integrity has prevailed over that which was not. Robust information is that which can resist perturbations to maintain its integrity. The ability to react to face perturbations to maintain information makes information adaptive, increasing its probability of maintenance."

If maintaining information integrity is what it's all about, then the best "adaptation" that an organism can do is to get itself frozen in ice.

Or trapped in salt!
