Isn’t there an information horizon around the internet?

The information content is the logarithm of the reciprocal of the substructure (paths and nodes) raised to the power of the technological index while the information entropy of the net is the maximum expected value of the internet’s information content.

If the content of the net exceeds the entropy of the net it will collapse into a black hole. To forestall this possibility the early designers (hallowed be their IBM Green Cards) designed the information horizon around the entire net by causing there to be, on all input protocols and data structures, a required key or field labeled “delete”.

That was how we did it in my day. You young folks have different and probably better ways.
