Hi Paola - |
The Cage analogy came around to silence being able to be bounded by sound. Carved sculptures take away unwanted material until only the essential parts remain. In museum design certain content is not ready to be named but it can be classified, subject areas yet to be defined are left as blank, un-labeled placeholders allocating space, hoping future requirements will fit without rearranging everything again.
More to your point surely is John's statement "more like a boundary than pure nothingness". So with the stretched metaphors above.....What do you think needs to be bounded? What are opposite each other inside and outside the boundaries? What could possibly be consistent across a range of ontologies? What existing communication system like OWL, or ___, or ___, or ___ is best suited to indicating a boundary? How do you know when you encounter a boundary? Simply won't process? How do you "see" the holes and can you measure how big or small they are?
