    Yes, definitions help us think more precisely about the world. The other view is solipsism, which seems to me more narcissistic, less scientific. Your mileage may differ.

    Ahhh .. back to defining and not defining, and heck, I don’t even know what story is anymore. But I do appreciate the forced thinking that you and Sandy are doing … perhaps is clarifies or perhaps it muddies my thinking, but in either case, I am wondering and pondering about it.

      Hence, the “so what” part of the title. I have the same feelings you do. As an American pragmatist (I farm, I have owned my own businesses, I tinker) defining is mostly done on the fly if and as needed. I hear you. I consider over-sharing and over-defining to be in the same emotional/ intellectual rowboat…with only one oar. ;{)
