Theory of Information
states that information, just like matter and energy, exists no matter whether we perceive it, understand it, measure it or not. This can be explained:
- All organised structures contain information. No organised structure can exist without containing information. (paradoxically, the more disorganised and unpredictable a system is, the more information it is possible to obtain by watching it.).
- The addition of information to a system manifests itself by causing a system to become more organised, reorganised.
- An organised system has the capacity to release or convey information.
- Heat is the product of energy interacting with matter, structure is the product of information interacting with matter.
- The more organised a structure or process is, the less information is needed to describe it completely.
