Hi Don-

Your example doesn't make sense to me. I think in both cases, the two books do add information- but in either case, the information isn't useful.

Don adds: Strictly speaking, Bernie is correct. But mutation inevitably
accompanies gene duplication. I once had the opportunity to demonstrate
this to Werner Gitt. I took two copies of his book 'In the Beginning was
Information', placed them side by side, and said "No new information."
Then I turned one of them upside down, and said "New information".
