Strategic Frontier

Function? What function?
"The hunt is not unlike trying to have a conversation with plants. If the pursuit were totally futile, how is it that agriculture has been so successful? Our mobility as animals and their lack of mobility as plants makes a huge difference in how each participates in communication with the other.

"Conversations with the Soup (as defined) have a similar quality. A dimension(s) has a different meaning to the opposite party. Time in the first, gravity in the second."

From the perspective we have been discussing, the similarities at the highest level of abstraction are most salient.

Sometimes one has to simply let go of deterministic rigor to access meaning. You can call it faith if you choose. Humor is an exercise in great leaps. Whether one calls it neural pruning, the beginnings of dementia or something in between, the practice of intellectual adventure is the foundation of significant discovery and useful synthesis.
