We are, we like to think, purposefully behaving beings. People, and probably higher animals, experience their environment, match the experience of the moment against stored memories, and act on the information so compounded. Life, at least during waking hours, is goal-directed behavior, powered by metabolism, driven by instinct, tempered by insight perhaps, but always obliged to be guided by information-This, at least, is the view of the optimist.
