"Noise becomes data when it has a cognitive pattern. Data becomes information when assembled into a coherent whole, which can be related to other information. Information becomes knowledge when integrated with other information in a form useful for making decisions and determining actions. Knowledge becomes understanding when related to other knowledge in a manner useful in anticipating, judging and acting. Undertsanding becomes wisdom when informed by purpose, ethics, principles, memory and projection."
- George Santayana (1863-1952)
