Exploring this place, mostly from an "integral and holistic" perspective, with a very ambitious background in what I call "algebraic semantics", and looking for ways to integrate sectors and sub-sets of human inquiry into stronger more parsimonious/elegant internally-consistent units. I like the famous quote from Linnaeus, and I have the vague/fuzzy/apocalyptic notion that maybe this theme can be generalized into a new Godel's proof on the absolute boundaries and internal structure of "semantic space" All the real knowledge which we possess depends on methods by which we distinguish the similar from the dissimilar. The greater the number of natural distinctions this method comprehends the clearer becomes our idea of things. The more numerous the objects which employ our attention the more difficult it becomes to form such a method, and the more necessary. -- Carolus Linnaeus, Genera Plantarum, 1737

    All the real knowledge which we possess depends on
    methods by which we distinguish the similar from the
    dissimilar. The greater the number of natural distinctions
    this method comprehends the clearer becomes our idea of
    things. The more numerous the objects which employ our
    attention the more difficult it becomes to form such a
    method, and the more necessary.
