Hi all. And Pardon my english.
About the painting, the house, etc.... consider that "information" has a great value.
From my book of Physics "Information is neg-entropy". In a rough definition the word entropy means disorder.
Imagine the letters of this message, they have a "value" beacuse they are "ordered" to form words and a text with a meaning.
If I would tiped the same amount of letters in random order, i.e. taking away all the information, I would destroyed all the value.
Same about the industrial work.
A car factory take some plastic, glass, rubber, iron,.... and add to this matter a lot of order and information.
Same for cells. When you take them apart you disorder them.
