Information is processed data, useful, it is the recipient of its decision-making or behavior actual or potential value.
Characterization of = the presentation of information in mind, the characterization is a reflection of objective things, is the object to be machined. There are strong subjective, subjectivity. Those with the characteristics of the image representation, also known as appearance, it is just a form of characterization. Characterized by at least two elements, one object, such as things or property, text, graphics, etc. - objective, object; brain, processing machines, different quality, different levels of processing (to imitate or create) a product - - the difference of genuine and imitation. Total is the source + sink. The identity of Representation different subjects vary a great difference on the same object, dissent.
Information is an abstract concept, although it is not material, but it has material, must not be left as a carrier material. The information is not energy, that it itself does not have the ability to do work on an object. Material movement requires energy, but at a particular time, a specific information can make a substance in accordance with the information brought to rely on other energy and sports. Speaking from the philosophical origin, information is the state of the movement of things and their status is changing to reflect on the state of motion of the other things its way.
So, from the philosophical meaning of terms, the following should grasp: First, information is ubiquitous in nature, human society, and thinking, an independent research object. It can be said to study the movement and its laws of things, without the aid of this movement and its laws to reflect on the movement of the other things it is impossible, not to explore the differences reflect on this research is impossible profound the. Second, information, material, energy is the concept of the three have established contact. They belong to the same non-defined concepts or meta-concept, are relatively independent object of study. The substance is the information carrier, the motion of matter is a source of information, although information is not material; energy is a necessary condition of the transmission of information, control energy information, however, both of which are not the same concept. Third, precisely because of the information, material, energy is independent of each other and contact the object, therefore, in-depth study of the information problem is not only important theoretical significance and practical importance.
