Define: Informavore

The term informavore … characterizes an organism that consumes information. It is meant to be a description of human behavior in modern information society, in comparison to omnivore, as a description of humans consuming food. George A. Miller…coined the term in 1983 as an analogy to how organisms survive by consuming negative entropy ….“Just as the body survives by ingesting negative entropy, so the mind survives by ingesting information. In a very general sense, all higher organisms are informavores.” (see: Wikepedia)
