Subtle Energy, Artificial Intelligence, and WiFi

Knowing that these energy fields are likely correlated with particular levels of complexity, what does this say for something like Artificial Intelligence? Is it possible to create algorithms that are sufficiently complex to generate and transmit these fields? Or would that algorithm need to consist of its own “great chain” of holonic components, analogous to the evolution of cells, organs, neural networks, limbic systems, etc., in order to conduct/generate/transmit a spectrum of subtle energies?

And what about wifi fields? Could we think of these almost like a rudimentary form of subtle energy? Obviously wifi is using gross electromagnetic mass-energy in order to communicate information — but the information itself is composed of subtle nouspheric signifiers that, while physically encoded within those electromagnetic fields, can only be reconstructed, perceived, and enacted by a human (or developmentally equivalent) mind.
