Information can be thought of as the resolution of uncertainty
; it is that which answers the question of "What an entity is" and thus defines both its essence and nature of its characteristics.
That which informs; the answer to a question of some kind; that from which data and knowledge can be derived
All facts, ideas or imaginative works of the mind which have been communicated, published or distributed formally or informally in any format, or the knowledge that is communicated or received.
That which resolves uncertainty; anything that answers the question of "what a given entity is".
