“"The map is not the territory," as the philosopher/scientist, Alfred Korzybski said. I'm thinking about this specifically as it applies to language and information. The things we say, and the ways we communicate information are all only abstractions of the things themselves. If we could realize the inherent incompleteness of our transmissions, we could quell so many of our current frustrations and hostilities. Often times, we're arguing only about language; the map is not the territory.”
