A fascinating post. Lots to wonder about here. Not least, "information from the environment".

But it's worth noting that you felt the need to put "anticipated" in scare quotes. Doesn't this suggest that you think that intentionally-loaded terms in this context should be viewed with skepticism - that there's a worry about how such language is used around biology?

There has been, as you know, some controversy about whether evolutionary biology has the machinery to explain representational content. Won't the preference for an expansive reading of purposes either beg the question, or lead to unhelpful equivocation?
