Wikipedia details six different aspects of information, as well as an etymology and the relation to semiotics. The latin root of the word information, informare, means to form an idea, giving shape to an idea. The Alexander Technique certainly deals with forming and shaping the organism, unveiling how deeply we have embodied our ideas. AT teachers inform their students with their hands, mirrors or video tapes can inform ourselves, so it seems worth a while to illuminate various aspects of information.
