Widely used terms that are commonly employed in the domain of discourse on complexity, such as understanding, complexity, information and data are ill defined and have different shades of meaning in different contexts. We are not trying to develop generally acceptable formal definitions of these terms—this seems to be impossible. It is also impossible to avoid some circularity when using words to introduce and describe a set of related concepts—we apologize for this circularity.
