Source: Self-Organizing Ideas by Gordon Brander

Maybe chaos is necessary for emergent behaviour. Thus, lossy communication in low bandwidth communication helps seed for selection/mutation of new ideas. Examples of this include writing.

When we write, we flatten the cloud of associated ideas in our head into a linearized subset (lossy). The reader then unflattens this linearized subset into their own cloud of associated ideas (lossy). Each lossy step is an opportunity for mutations in understanding to emerge.
