as is clear the asymmetry between the vendor of something you don't need and you: the vendor needs your money, and it is why he delivers his information. It is rarely good for you. Information is received ? The question is: why the sender indeed sent information ? Michel Petitjean, CEA/DSV/iBiTec-S/SB2SM

Dear Joe, dear FISErs, An organic chemist is able to predict a number of properties from the structural formula, including much about reactivity of the compound. But as you know, doing that properly is extremely difficult in a number of cases, because the rules governing reactivity are much more

Dear Stan, I would not insert an 'organic realm' in the hierarchy: it is part of the chemical realm, but it is broader than expected. The rules of Organic Chemistry are not universal as the theorems of mathematics are: many exceptions exist, at least due to the existence of multifunctional

Dear Loet, Thanks for your very good reply. Yes information cannot be found as res extensa, justs as mathematics: mathematics exist in our head, and can be communicated, can be taught, etc., but do not exist as concrete objects. However, starting from data (and databanks), we can extract knowledge

Karl did an interesting remark. Yes, circle, distance, equal, etc. are terms understood by everybody. But it often happened that mathematicians attribute definitions to terms used in a non math context. E.g., a circle is a set of points in the Euclidean plan lying at a given distance from a point
