Context is a fundamental condition for the error free transmission of reproducible and intelligible information. Nothing exists in isolation. Nothing exists in isolation, everything is intertwined. The more context we are aware of, the greater our understanding.

"A problem never exists in isolation; it is surrounded by other problems in space and time. The more of the context of a problem that a scientist can comprehend, the greater are his chances of finding a truly adequate solution." - Russell L. Ackoff ("The Development of Operations Research as a Science". Operations Research, Volume 4, No. 3, pp. 265-295, www.jstor.org. June 1956.)
