Thanks you for the shoutout on this smile emoticon
Yeah, I guess I do smile emoticon Yeah, numbers are metaphors. They’re agnostic (in the “i don’t know” sense) about what they represent… two apples? Don’t care. Two pears? Don’t care. All treated the same.
Flip it up though and really, it *is* rather important what the numbers represent. They’re metaphors for a ‘something’.
Are we talking about people? Or grains of sand? Makes a big difference between them: people aren’t grains of sand, even if numbers METAPHORICALLY treat them the same.
