A set of relations fixed by experience for the purpose of understanding?

This would distinguish information from a fact, which might be 'A set of
relations fixed by experience'.

If relations, and therefore, information can be symbolically
represented, then what the computer processes is the symbolic form of
information.  I haven't a clue how this fits into Peter's project.
