The information is a concept of the science communication . Etymologically, the information is giving a shape in mind 1 . It comes from the Latin verb informare , which means “to give shape to” or “to form an idea of”.
Information refers to both the message to be communicated and the symbols used to write it. It uses a code of meaningful signs such as an alphabet of letters , a base of numbers 2 , ideograms or pictograms .
Out of context, it represents the vehicle of data as in the theory of information . And without support, it represents a factor of organization , which allows each thing to be connected to others by the information exchanged. Here we reach a fundamental meaning, where a sum of aggregated information becomes a subject. It can be built as a computer program , or natural as light or matter .
