In this paper, we show that configurational notions follow from inherent properties of informational concepts. First, we analyze the hidden complexity of the central family of configurational relations (command) from which all the others (government, proper government, etc.) are derived. We then examine the different types of grammatical information, their sources and their propagation mode. Finally we show how simple and general constraints on these might make syntactic dependencies appear to be governed by configurational relations such as command, but just like the Stars might appear to be turning around the Earth.
