Words are funny things. They're convenient to convey thoughts, but they also have to break things down into manageable pieces. So, by nature, they fail to capture the full scope of a subject.

The best metaphor, I think, is a map. A full-scale map would be completely accurate, but it would be utterly useless. Instead, the details are discarded in order to present a useful overview.

Welcome to my Livejournal.

It has words.

Sometimes pictures, too.
