incorrect beginnings can still lead to marvelous results

Regarding Linguistics (which has always been a hobby of mine), I’ve tended through the years to lean more towards Lakoff than Chomsky (although Chomsky was fabulously necessary for the early computing era and spawned many great strides in linguistics, even if there’s really no language centers of the brain that are innate; incorrect beginnings can still lead to marvelous results).

I’m also a fan of embodied cognition which makes me a bit of a weirdo when speaking with those who believe in complete computational models of the brain or “the universe is mathematics” (sells books but there’s a good example of analogies-taken-too-far as well).
