Encoding is not comparable to the process carried out by any matter-energy
processing subsystem because ... cells like neurons and cells of endocrine
glands— encode in the organelles (perhaps RNA-bearing ribosomes) that

Changes in encoding over time. Example: The neuron could encode only up to a
certain rate of inputs, after which its encoding and output rates declined.
