We would not, as had others, be invoking metaphors or loose analogies. Instead, our intention was to derive models from the mathematics that are applied to physical objects and to use comparable methods for exploring mental objects – quantified dimensions of human communicative outputs. This was at last an attempt at so-called hard science.
