dc.description.abstract Starting from some general considerations on how information has to be valued as a third philosophical entity between subject and object, the problem on how signal transmission will be influenced by the environment is discussed. The environment with its non-predictable and unknown statistical fluctuations causes a disturbance of the information channel in use which is referred to as noise and becomes the ever important entity in questioning how we could understand our world. In this context the term “Erwartungswert, i.e. “expectation value” is introduced. en_US
