Let's quit reducing...

The fact of the matter is that tigers aren't 24/7 killing machines. Sometimes they just like a good roll in the hay with any old dirty dog that hops the fence. No killing, no tearing of flesh. The tiger is not the tiger you thought it would be.

Our words and our ideas are not the things they stand for. The map is not the territory. Danger is contingent. People are not the concepts you have of them. So, if you're not factoring fluidity and change and details into your world, you're gonna miss out, and your gonna hurt some feelings too. How complex can our mental images get? Can 2009 be about refining the granularity of our psychic profiles?
Good idea!
