I can't see much difference between "calculating power" and
"information processed", but what you seem to be saying is that
communication is more important than computation. If I understand
you correctly, I agree with you on the abstract point.

I don't understand the part where you seem to be insisting that
money and trade are not modes of communication. It's obvious to me
that these are indispensable modes of communication.

Can you explain to us what the difference between these two
things is? Or are you engaging in empty rhetoric?
