There is no information "an sich" or in other words information needs in all cases a material carrier. E.g., the genetic information has been inscribed in the DNA sequences--for coding of information structural units on molecular level are used. Analogically, photons with mass m, wavelength [lambda], and frequency v reveal many properties that are used for information transfer. An experienced observer can extract from measured photon properties a set of valuable information about the source of those photons.
For the interpretation of the observed photon properties, we will use concepts of "old physics" where the photon with mass m (Lavoisierian caloric mass concept) selforganizes its surroundings with the wavelength [lambda] (Aristotelian space concept) and the frequency v (Galilean time concept). During the Doppler-Voigt-Einstein selforganization the events summarized in the Table I should be observed.
The symbols in the Table I have the following meaning:
[v.sub.1] and [v.sub.2] are speeds of a falling object, [d.sub.1] and [d.sub.2] are distances, [t.sub.1] and [t.sub.2] are times, [c.sub.1, rel 1] is the light speed c relative to the source [c.sub.2, rel 1] is the light speed c relative to the source [m.sub.1], [[lambda].sub.1], [v.sub.1] are the photon properties tuned at the source, [m.sub.2], [[lambda].sub.2], [v.sub.2] are the photon …
