A study of amounts of information necessary to localize the trajectory of a dynamical system known as the Mixmaster universe is presented. The main result is that less information is necessary near the cosmological singularity of the system than far away. This conclusion is obtained by evolving probability distributions towards the singularity and comparing the associated information functions. Qualitative methods of dynamical systems theory present a phenomenon that might be related to this loss of information.
