An issue associated with Korzybski (whose slogan, "The
*critical value
*error distribution
Map Is Not The Territory", has found a home in sci-fi
*mean: ''sujycnano''
**arithmetic mean: ''jmina sujycnano''
lore) but such questions can be found even as far back
**geometric mean: ''pilji sujycnano''
**harmonic mean: ''te dilcu sujycnano''
as Augustine. Of course, the most extreme form of this
**root mean squared: ''reltenfa sujycnano''
*median: ''porcnano''
--identical with [[jbocre: Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis apir-Whorf|Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis apir-Whorf]] taken literally-- is obviously
*mode: ''cafraicnano''
*normal distribution: ''cunrgauso'' (x1 is normally distributed with mean x2 and standard deviation x3)
false: we DO perceive things we don't have a name for,
*statistic: ''gumdatni''
nor are we bound to believe that things exist merely
because we have words for them. But it is good to be able
to refer to this tendency succinctly. "Reification" is a
feature of several mental illnesses (although this concept
itself is a bit of a reification--see Foucault), and insofar
as it often accompanies severely ideological political stances,
there may eventually develop a consensus that these are not
two separate phenomena, one treatable by medicine and the other
requiring such accommodations as may prove fatal to democratic
societies,--but one.
And one is also allowed to ask the question: what would
"Lojbanic reification" be?
