Does "forbidding density" mean "overcrowded content"?

Thanks in advance

Tononi kicked off the NYU workshop with a 90-minute tutorial on IIT, followed by another hour from Koch. Their presentations paralleled their 2015 paper on IIT, “Consciousness: here, there and everywhere?” Although the paper has whimsical passages (the title echoes an old Beatles song), this excerpt conveys IIT’s forbidding density:

    As the abbreviations NYU and IIT are not on WRF's list of exemptions, could you please gloss them, especially IIT.

    IIT stands for "
    (Can) Integrated Information Theory (Explain Consciousness?
    A radical new solution to the mind–body problem poses problems of its own)", and NYU for New York University.

    No. Dense as in "difficult to understand or follow because of being closely packed with ideas or complexities of style" (from WR dictionary).
