Hi Joe Dees -
>the equation e=mc^2 ... may be ... written in many languages
I've long held a sort of aesthetic theory that, yeah, the form "E=mc2"
(an equation, using one term to correlate a phrase consisting of an
object and a modified action), to be the most pure form of metaphor, but,
that sort of philosophy aside, in what other language can I write that
How can something so specific to its location and function in knowledge
be translated at all, without becoming something quite else?
Are you saying that cow1 is indeed cow2, and might even be horse3?
