If I have a surface of water in a basin, and I apply a tuning fork or vibrator of some kind to the basin, I will get a set of what are called "stationary waves" on the surface of that water. These appear to be stationary, but their stationariness, of course, is partly a fiction because every wave only has its existence because of forces between it and the next wave, etc., etc. The whole thing is a dynamic structure, not a static structure. Now let me put into that surface an external object, let me poke it with a pin or a rod. Now that whole phantom on that surface is going to be changed by the presence of that rod invading it. Say that around backwards and you've got the statement that all over the pattern of that surface is information about the invading rod. There is a change everywhere in that surface which could conceivably be used as information about the invader.
