    I know of some words by artist Frank Zappa:
    "information is not knowledge, knowledge is not wisdom, wisdom is not love, love is not music. music is the best". Does the final revelation bring to our discussion the power of emotions in communication? Is emotional communication like music powerful because of its psychological impressions or "imprintings", which are, in specific conditions like ones based less on concepts than in more complex meanings, prompted by personal experiences more than formal elaborations?

    (So if your 'information' is not informative, it's just data.)

    Who said that? I can't remember.
