#information

Information (shortened as info) is that which informs. In other words, it is the answer to a question of some kind. It is thus related to data and knowledge, as data represents values attributed to parameters, and knowledge signifies understanding of real things or abstract concepts.[1] As it regards data, the information’s existence is not necessarily coupled to an observer (it exists beyond an event horizon, for example), while in the case of knowledge, the information requires a cognitive observer.

At its most fundamental, information is any propagation of cause and effect within a system. Information is conveyed either as the content of a message or through direct or indirect observation of anything. That which is perceived can be constructed as a message in its own right, and in that sense, information is always conveyed as the content of a message.

The English word was apparently derived from the Latin stem (information-) of the nominative (informatio): this noun is derived from the verb informare (to inform) in the sense of "to give form to the mind", "to discipline", "instruct", "teach". Inform itself comes (via French informer) from the Latin verb informare, which means to give form, or to form an idea of. Wikipedia etymology(*null If you want you may ngisum & consult RS thus:

It was the Spirits of Form — ‘dancing upon the waves,’ as Dr. Steiner puts it — who brought the ever-moving forms to rest. Hence they deserve their name, as the creators of more lasting form. They too, like the Spirits of Movement, work primarily inward from the cosmic sphere, yet they unfold their forces in both realms — that of the Thrones as well as that of the Spirits of Movement. Where these two realms of forces meet, the Spirits of Form, since a certain period of Earth-evolution, have brought the ever-moving forms to rest.

Solidifying that which is in eternal motion.


the trick is allowing forms to animate null,
giving them only a moments rest in the mind.
