Topology and the Information Structuring

Information, topology, reality, cognition, energy, brain


In this paper, we aim at a dynamical, structurally-phenomenological approach, from a multidisciplinary point of view, starting from today’s information technology and from the last theories of the second half of the 20th century, which are connected to non-linear dynamics, fractal geometry, topology and complex systems theory. Shannon and Weaver’s information theory grasps only the quantitative aspect, through associating information to entropy and the second law of thermodynamics, so that only artificial languages and information technology finally implement the qualitative aspect of information. The proof that information is involved in all the processes, at all scales and levels of reality, is the very difficulty of defining information. The network topology, just as the knot theory in the information technology, highlight an apparently surprising aspect, that is, topology is the suitable mathematical instrument for formalizing information. Topology of information might represent the modality of grasping information in its qualitative form, as the way to unify reality, and reality with cognition, through information.
