THE PROCESS OF COMMUNICATION ENDS WITH DISAMBIGUATION (due diligence)
— “we need both fiction and science” — John Dow
Well that’s the argument I make right?
That we TEACH (transfer relations) and IMITATE by fictions, but that we JUDGE and DEDUCE from SCIENCE. Via positiva ‘fictions’ and via negativa ‘truth’.
The problem then becomes limiting the fictions to fictions rather than fictionalism. In other words, stories (literature, myth, parable) and not pseudoscience, pseudo-rationalism (which is the most … seductive because it requires the least knowledge), and pseudo-history.
In other words, the grammar of continuous disambiguation (universal grammar) of any neural network (category generating hierarchy) requires that we create analogies to transfer relations (communicate) then disambiguate them as defense against fraud (and error).
Language requires continuous disambiguation. But it does not end with communication -it ends with deflation, and disambiguation of that which has been communicated.
