Why does it seem so natural for human beings to fall into the error of linking words to things in a more or less one-to-one relationship? Seems almost universal. I've also been thinking about hallucinations & visions. We mean different things by these two words, but I'm having a hard time sorting out the differences. Blake had visions; the guy in the psychiatric ward has hallucinations. Are visions just culturally valued hallucinations. (I know this is running far afield, but it's what's been on my mind.) I've also been pursuing practical ethics over on my other weblog.
