Example of an Information Pattern — Garlic Lowers [Does Not Lower] Cholesterol

December 15, 2007

A few days ago I wrote a blog on information patterns. Today I will give an example of an information pattern.

There is a debate occurring in parts of our society on whether garlic lowers cholesterol. There are documents on the web that claim garlic lowers cholesterol, and there are documents that state garlic does not lower cholesterol.

“Garlic Lowers Cholesterol” represents one information pattern.

“Garlic Does Not Lower Cholesterol” represents another information pattern.

Each web page which claims garlic lowers cholesterol is an instance of the “Garlic Lowers Cholesterol” information pattern.

Each web page which states garlic does not lower cholesterol is an instance of the “Garlic Does Not Lower Cholesterol” information pattern.
