I feel guilty for making a lot of noise on this forum. My sincere appologies. On the other hand looking at the deadlock when confronted with the problems to be sorted for further advance I cannot help trying to contribute with ideas that I find relevant. For instance, one of the problems that ontologies cannot solve yet as I see it is compatibility between words used in texts, free-floating or otherwise with reality. All such texts read projections, because we make statements by using phrases (word clusters) that never get properly defined as a whole (and not checked against reality, and parsed by computers as composites of parts) even not even afterwards – for the sake of reflection. Neither are such phrases recorded with sufficient annotation of meaning in terms, for instance, extension and intension.
Random example from a recent posting, no criticism intended:
(Phrases that are ambiguous or left to any voluntary definitions of the audience, or evidenced by a single example as opposed to providing more rigorous and chained definitions)
And so on.
