Upon creation of communication networks, people called their content information and started to deal with this content as with any routine and commonplace objects - produce, consume, distribute, store, sell and buy. There are electronic markets, electronic media, e-mail, social and gaming networks, where people are building almost a full life with its economy, politics, psychology ...and pathology. E-life generates huge amount of texts, which are archived and stored. These texts contain, perhaps, the answers to all questions, as well as those questions. In principle, if only I knew how, from this array we are likely to gain all that knowledge of humankind. If you would just know how. Someday search algorithms will achieve a degree of perfection that we will no longer have the problem of the search itself. But it's a belief of only the most hardcore programmers. Information experts, discussing their small applied problems, gradually expand horizons and start philosophizing, with not much of reflection. Talk about taxonomy , ontologies , hierarchy , as well as attempts to give these philosophical notions the operational form, little by little have become commonplace among the advanced specialists, who act as creators of the new information philosophy. Publications of this kind would rather replenish arrays of texts already stored in the network than solve the problem of searching the content of these networks. Nevertheless, the drift from technological to philosophical attempts at solutions is very indicative. But its focus is doubtful, because philosophizing was, is and will be no more than just philosophizing. Another thing is to try to understand what tool could be drawn from the information contained in the philosophical texts, including those devoted to the philosophy of information. Such intent is equally justified, just as is the philosophizing, but not familiar. It is usually assumed that the philosophy does not contain the information which can be processed with known statistical methods. Contrary to this view, we believe that the philosophy and philosophizing, in addition to frequently elusive meaning, contain specific information, and we can learn to extract it. This very information might solve many problems of the search in a meaningful way. This paper uses the philosophical in its origin concepts of world view , ontology outlook , reality and its levels, which are operationalized and redefined in the course of presentation
