Sorry, I'm not clear what you mean. Can you suggest what such a logic
might consist of or concern itself with, beyond such basics as the
foregoing? Because I've been assuming that information theory would
cover all this, but I'm very far from being an expert on it. (I'm into
the philosophy of information, which is a different area, though of
course it's adjacent.)
