All phenomena can be described as information, so these laws try to describe general features found across all scales.
- Law of Information Transformation. Information will potentially be transformed by interacting with other information.
- Law of Information Propagation. Information propagates as fast as possible.
- Law of Requisite Complexity. More complex information will require more complex agents to perceive, act on, and propagate it.
- Law of Information Criticality. Transforming and propagating information will tend to a critical balance between its stability and its variability.
- Law of Information Organization. Information produces constraints that regulate information production.
