CODE CREATION 1)2)
The extraction of significant algorithms from redundant information.
An alphabet, for example, is the most constrained collection of sounds used in a spoken language, or also graphic representations of these sounds in its written form. (or should be, since in french for example nasal sounds as "on", "an", "un", etc…, are not represented as a single letter in the alphabet).
This kind of compression is also obvious in the "part-for-whole" coding explained by G. BATESON: "The verbal message 'It is raining ' is to be seen as a part of a larger universe within which that message creates redundancy or predictability" (1973, p.391).
This universe must of course have been learned before it can be used as a frame for code creation.
There are many types of codes: digital, analogic, iconic, metaphoric, etc…
- 1) General information
- 2) Methodology or model
- 3) Epistemology, ontology and semantics
- 4) Human sciences
- 5) Discipline oriented
