This paper contains further analysis of the concept of information aimed at discovering new features of this mysterious but very important phenomenon. We base our analysis on the general theory of information and contemporary theoretical physics. This approach allows for the explication of two basic complementary types of information—potential and impact information. In such a way, we achieve a better understanding of information as a natural and social phenomenon, which serves as a base for developing novel tools for measuring information.
