- a mental size, with the strategies of wish, target, and intention;
- a moral measurement, with the suggestions of voluntariness and choice;
- an highbrow measurement, with the thoughts of cause, wisdom, and belief.
Studying every one of those dimensions of human motion individually yields a string of unique effects, culminating in a brand new research of the connection among wisdom and rational behaviour, which supplies the basis for a brand new conception of information itself.
