Regarding Rick's long and interesting discussion on looping, exact copies, 
and small randomness "livening up" a repetitive pattern: as I remember 
things, one tenet of information theory (as I learned it) is that the more 
of the content of a message that you are able to predict, the less 
information that message contains. So predictability is inversely 
correlated with information. So even slight variations in a repetitive 
sequence raise the level of information.
