Information and information processing is one of the most important aspects of dynamic systems. The term 'information', that is used in various contexts, might better be replaced with one which incorporates novelty and related concepts. Many important communications of learning systems are non-ergodic. The ergodicity assumption of Shannon's communication theory restricts his concept to systems that can not learn. For learning systems that interact with their environments the more primitive concept of 'variety' will have to be used, instead of probability. A suitable concept to information processing of learning systems is presented.
