In order to better understand the concept of Truth as "Information with Value", it is useful to use it to analyze practical examples. Here, an example of finding a store is used to show how directions are a kind of truth.
Imagine that you are in an unfamiliar town, and you decide that you want to buy milk, no matter how long it takes. You have now given yourself a definite task to accomplish.
TASK : Go to a grocery store to buy milk.
You have a task to accomplish, to go buy milk, but it is an unfamiliar town, so you don’t know where the grocery store is. You will have to set aside a lot of time, searching left and right, down roads and alleys until you happen to stumble across a grocery store by chance. At this point, say after over an hour of wandering, you finally find a store and buy your milk. It had better be good milk.
Imagine that after an hour of wandering, you finally find the store and realize it was only two blocks away from where you started. Of course, you didn’t know that, so you spent all your time searching in the wrong direction. You have your milk, but you are frustrated and exhausted from the extra effort needed to find the store.
What would have made your task easier? Directions, of course. Directions to the store would have allowed you to travel there easily, without having to wander and search. They would have allowed you to find the store in only ten minutes instead of an hour, while travelling only the minimum distance necessary. Directions could have measurably decreased the time and effort you needed to buy milk.
The directions might have looked like this:
Directions can be written down, but they are not really a physical thing. What are they really? Directions are Information. The same information can be communicated in many different ways. Directions can be communicated using language. Directions can be mapped out. Or, they can by symbolically represented. The important thing isn't how the directions are represented or communicated. The important thing is the information, the directions themselves, and that that information is accurately communicated to you.
So how do you know the information was accurately communicated? That the information is important, or meaningful at all? That the directions are actually that, and aren't just random scribbles on a piece of paper.
The directions actually gain meaning and validity by their ability to help you accomplish a real task, in the real world. To have a measurable effect on your ability to complete a real task. When you actually walk the two blocks, find the store there, and buy your milk. That is when the directions have proven their validity.
Until then, there is no real way of knowing whether the directions are accurate or not.
To you, standing there, wanting desperately to buy milk but having no idea where the store is, the directions to the store are information with Value. Information that has the ability to increase your effectiveness at the task of buying milk. That can measurably reduce the time and energy you need to find the store. This means that the directions are Truth. The directions are information with real, measurable, intrinsic value.
In this modern world you could just pull out your smartphone, and search for the nearest grocery. Before smartphones, you could have just asked someone local where the nearest place to buy milk was. In one case technology is a source of truth, in another, a much more ancient source of truth, language, is used. In both cases, your effectiveness is dramatically increased by this ability to communicate and share information with value. Being able to communicate, store, and share information with ability to increase effectiveness, or truth, is an incredibly valuable property of both language and technology.
This example hopefully helps illustrate how the concept of truth as Information with Value can be thought of and used in a practical way.
