Evolution of new information

Duplications, insertions, translocations and point mutations can create new information, without the old being lost:
(For vocabulary, see below )

Example:
the rose is red.
Duplication: the rose is red. the rose is red.

Now one of these copies are free to change without losing the original information in the other copy.

Emagine a large population of this sentence, undergoing random changes. Changes that result in gibberish 'die', changes that result in meaningful sentences 'live' and reproduce, resulting in new changes:

Original: the rose is red
Point mutation: the nose is red
Point mutation: the note is red
Insertion: the note is read
Insertion: the note is spread
Deletion: the note spread
Insertion: the notes spread
Translocation: spread the notes
Deletion: read the notes

Nothing is left of the original information, but all the changes are meaningful.

Or you could have a variation of all sorts of mutations leading to a wealth of new information:

Original: the rose is red
Duplication: the rose is red, the rose is red
Point mutation: the nose is red, the rose is red
Duplication: the nose is red, the nose is red, the rose is red
Point mutations: the nose is red, the hose is red, the rose is red
Insertion: the nose is red, the house is red, the rose is red
Duplication: the nose is red, the house is red, the house is red, the rose is red
Point mutation: the nose is red, the house is red, the horse is red, the rose is red
Insertion: the nose is red, the house is red, the horse is bred, the rose is red
Insertion: the nose is red, the house is rented, the horse is bred, the rose is red
Point mutation: the note is red, the house is rented, the horse is bred, the rose is red
Insertion: the note is read, the house is rented, the horse is bred, the rose is red

Vocabulary
Duplication: One string of letters is duplicated into two identical copies.
Insertion: One or more letters are inserted into the original string of letters.
Translocation: A string of letters is transported from one location to another.
Point mutation: A single letter is change to another letter.
