been working on a hard physicalist view of this.
if everything is physical, the connections between concepts may be an echo of a basic life process.
what allows different things to link?
what happens at an interface?
a mixing. acceptance. rejection. (security).
like a vestibule.
over the last week I’ve been looking and right down to nuclear pore there’s these beautiful one way and two way interfaces across membranes sharing smaller parts.
what’s metaphors and analogies? synonyms?
what affords concepts to have any relations at all to be in an ontology?
i think the process is a scaled up echo of millions of tiny biological processes, not as a direct 1:1 or 1:many but rather the process.
