Real-Time Metaphors

'You don`t see something until you have the right metaphor to let you perceive it'.

Robert Stetson Shaw in Thomas, S Kuhn
Making a New Science, New York, 1987. (p.262)

I love this quote. It is so difficult to conceive of anything that we don't have a word for. Metaphors can fill that gap but then by their very nature they also constrain our name something is to control it, the ancient religions used to contend - sometimes metaphors can deliberately lead us away from naming things that others do not wish us to control perhaps.....Interesting thoughts :)

By no means industry with small print. Small print on any form of graph or chart or system ensures that the trade was determined soon after it occurred, not along the way. For the best accurate details, just use these graphs that say these people were recorded reside, as you can rest assured the figures are just where these folks were in the industry.

Be preventative, not simply reactive. Of course, you should get rid of whatever unwanted pests you may have in your home, but make sure to also handle just how the issue began to start with! Is there a fracture within your floors that helped bring pests in? Have it repaired. What is the habit that meals are left out? Modify the training. This may keep these insects from coming back repeatedly. [url=]micr3oe5e[/url]
