Information as an aspect of nature appears to be manifold and complex in its manifestations in natural phenomena, particularly in biological phenomena where it is stored, transferred and used with remarkable precision. Biological phenomena are distinguished by the remarkable stability, precision and organization characteristics they display in the storage, in the transfer and especially in the putting to use of information, that is, in performance. The author talks about Categories of Information, and describes how this concept emerged and how these categories were identified in the course of a comparative study of some of the various known formulations of the principles of classical mechanics.
