The problem with spinning ad-hoc "information theories" is that it's only too easy to spin them to prove any point desired, including points that contradict each other.

This particular instructor had a number of .. um .. novel idea systems, but from our standpoint, when you applied his stuff, it worked, at least in the design of complex nonlinear control systems.  

He never claimed to be proving any points, other than the general rule "In any exam situation, the correct answer is the one the Instructor wants".

You are not only insisting that "I poked a badger with a spoon" would  be a good example of "an original sin", you're arguing it with  an archbishop.
