Since ages, the major mode of existence of human species on this planet is synthesizing the undivided wholeness, at the same time this is the major motivation of their survival also. Through this practice, unlike the other species on earth, they were able to perceive their respective forms and features as an integral part of the whole. But it is also true, that somewhere during such acts this derived knowledge has empowered them to forget to acknowledge the source or origin of such achievements. The deviation that has evolved at this juncture has led the entire mankind from the realm of perceptive knowledge to rational science and from there to the modern era of technology when the entire episteme* is being remoulded to the tune of rational and also instrumental configurations. Life is no more an accessory to the whole; it has now been fragmented into several spheres of definitive versions which are rigidly envious of each other. Such decadence, as history reveals have given birth to incredulities, self deceptive approaches among the human beings in their way of making themselves civilized. Quite obviously this situation has pervaded the natural process of gathering knowledge and consequently reality has become the more important phenomenon than actuality. Therefore, from the unbridled domain of knowledge the civilization is now under mitigation or structuralisation through information. Literally the word information is derived from in-formation, which clearly indicates that definitive norms and forms have replaced indefinite hypothetical notions or beliefs. Dear reader, in such perspective, this article is initiated to quest for the gap emanated so far between perception based knowledge and technology based information and also to contemplate the correlation of the physical sciences, mathematics, politics and economics along with their generative basis.
