data, information, knowledge, and intelligence

I’ve really got to start writing down my notes in normally-comprehensible ways. I know that it’s still going to be dense because I’m a “dense” thinker. Because of how my brain works–specifically my working memory and spatial reasoning capacities–a lot of my research / observations are chaotically documented in graphs and flow charts. Adapting any part of it to linear text is a challenge.

I’m just going to jump right in–these are all observations without objective study.

Data directly affects information.
Information does not directly affect data.
The transformation of data to information is an open-loop system.

Knowledge affects intelligence.
Intelligence affects knowledge.
The transformation of knowledge to intelligence and intelligence to knowledge is an open-loop system.

Knowledge, for the sake of my analysis, is defined as: memory dependent, networked information. Said information is uniquely encoded by our brain.
Intelligence, for the sake of my analysis, is defined as: information-based response. To juxtapose but quite similarly, in the field of intelligence studies (CIA, NSA, etc) intelligence is known as actionable information.

The open-loop system that is knowledge and intelligence directly affects the open-loop system that is data and information.
Information directly affects knowledge, and no other process in the open-loop system that is data and information affects the open-loop system that is knowledge and intelligence.

Information does not create, change, or delete data. Only through knowledge and intelligence (in that order) can information (processed via human perception) affect the creation, modification, or deletion of data.

Separately, the semantic value (subjective to knowledge) of a word is:

Relative to relation (relation to semantic or environmental information, or both).
Relative to order (the order of the string of information, be it semantic or environmental).
Relative to (other things?)

The order in a string of semantic content (words) is subjective to knowledge because it is knowledge-based comprehension.

Semantic-content’s relation dictates semantic-content’s order.
