    1. Wikipedia says that “information, in its most restricted technical sense, is a sequence of symbols that can be interpreted as a message.” The characters of the text you’re reading form words — the message. The words represent concepts — the meaning.

    2. அறிவியலில் WIND -ஐப் பற்றிச் சொல்லும்போது “THE MOVEMENT OF AIR FROM HIGH PRESSURE TO LOW PRESSURE AREA IS CALLED WIND” என்கிறார்கள். தமிழில் AIR என்பதைக் காற்று எனவும், WIND என்பதை வீசும் காற்று எனவும் கூறுகிறார்கள். காற்று வீசினால் தான் நம்மால் அதை உணர முடியும். அப்படி அது வீசுவதற்கு அதிக அழுத்தத்திலிருந்து குறைந்த அழுத்தத்தை நோக்கிச் செல்ல வேண்டும். ஒரு வகையான அழுத்த/ வெப்ப மாறுபாடுகளால் மட்டுமே காற்று வீசுகிறது. இந்த வீசும் காற்றே பூமியைச் சுற்றி ஒரு அழுத்த பெல்ட்டை உருவாக்கி அதை ஓர் உயிருள்ள கோளமாக மாற்றுகிறது. இங்கிருந்து ஒரு சிந்தனையை அடைந்தேன். இந்த உலகம் ஒரு சமமின்மையால் தான் உயிர்ப்புடன் இருக்கிறதோ என்ற எண்ணம் வந்தது.
