I may have found a tool to help my long research for “interface” (or gap) and that is this broad definition “tool”. I’m always looking for a perfect combinations of words and these are good for my purposes:
“a tool is an entity used to interface between two or more domains.”
So: Going reverse:
1) A domain. Its antonyms are: waste, wilderness, wild.
A domain’s synonyms are: sphere, domain, area, orbit, field, arena
“territory over which rule or control is exercised”
So, a kingdom with a ruler.
Who rules or owns each of the domains is an open question right now.
2) Between. If it’s not domain, it’s waste, wilderness, wild.
3) Skipping to front, “tool is an entity” means I can say “entity” instead of “tool”. Entity is a being, presence, an idea, a thing, an object, a body, a grouping, just for a few.
4) “used to”. Used by what or whom? This returns to “domain” and its owner/ruler(s). Is a tool used by two or more domains? Well, “does an action to” two or more domains.
But it can also be an outsider, an entity from the “waste, wilderness, wild”.
(Synonyms for waste, wilderness, wild are forthcoming)
5) “Interface”. That is the crux of what I’m looking for, this action of ‘interface’. I’d been looking specifically at different ways this concept of interface has been used in different contexts. But I think I’m ready to tie it together as I think this good combination of words may be able to do it.
I may start standardizing my language to this because it fits. Can I say “domain” instead of “contexts”? Is a Concept an entity used to interface between two or more domains? Well, a metaphor is. An analogy is. Are all concepts? They may be.
So, that’s some unfiltered thoughts. Note, publicly. Also easier to find on my phone or home.
