        Yes, Connections are "communication channels" and any given LS can have
only a finite number of observable configurations with which to encode a
finite number of messages and/or construct a finite number of models to
infer the observations of other LSs. The point that I has alluding to
was that there are potentially an infinite (cardinality > than the
continuum!?) number of possible different connections between them, but
these are never observable; we can only represent a finite number of
events/states thus we can only observe/be aware of a finite number of
        This speaks to the information/communication theory aspects of LS
