Generally information from external world are made available through 
pool variables since they are broadly consumed by many classes. Examples 
  * Physical or Math constants like pi, e, ...
  * Conventional names for weeks, months, colors, directions, playing 
cards, chess pieces.
  * Elements of binary file headers
  * Character and Font tables
  * Sensor events coming from hardware devices (like button codes)


    SharedPool subclasses

to see real-life usage in method source codes.
