Last updated March 17, 2023

The basic intuition here is that because synthesis involves creating a whole from new parts, composability facilitates synthesis. As it is difficult to compose large chunks of highly nuanced information, compression facilitates composability by giving individuals smaller, easier to remember “handles” to piece together, through a mechanism more fully described in Hypertext enables communication with high information density.
