Agency as Shanon information. Unveiling limitations and common misconceptions

We consider similarities with Shanon infromation, enthropy and agency. We argue that agency is agent-independent and observer-dependent property. We discuss agency in the context of empowerment and argue that AI safety shall be concerned with both. We also provide the connection between quantifiable agency and agency as described in social sciences.
