Names (truth) vs Analogies (deceits)

[A] sequence of operations consists of names. I can name that sequence of operations. An experience or an observation or an imagination of cause and effect is an analogy. Names may or may not convey meaning. THey may or may not convey loadings which we, as moral creatures, feel are terribly important. But operations are names and experiences are analogies.

I have a pretty low opinion of meaning.

It’s a vehicle for comprehension yes.

But that comprehension is by definition loaded.

And loading and framing are means of deceit.
