Atomic relativism and holistic absolutism

How much information can be contained within a perfectly uniform distribution? Could any single part be said to have more significance compared to any other part of a perfectly uniform distribution? In some sense, the ability to encode information in a signal relies on leveraging probabilistic non-uniformity. A code can only be created if something is more or less likely to happen than something else. The more stark the contrast, the easier it is to create a code. But codes only work if you can leverage the same probability distribution from both the sending and receiving end. I propose that in a system with interconnected parts, in which you do not know the underlying probability distribution for events, the equivalent of creating a code is structural survival. Whatever entity can prevent itself from being changed, or perhaps allows itself to be changed in a way that always allows it to revert back to a previous state, is similarly establishing a stark contrast to its environment, and
