Summary: Science forswears direct knowledge in favor of the indirect.
Epistemology [54]: Primary knowledge is the "raw feel". Science seeks secondary knowledge - the patterned and communicable, which consists only of higher relations among the raw data. 5282.
The subjective [6]: The primary data are in the raw feelings. Science works only in higher relations between the raw feelings, for only the higher relations are communicable. 5282.

Summary: The whole built from random parts, by random coupling, when each part has probability πi that its state is equilibrial, does not go (if not in equilibrium) equiprobably to all states but favours those "near" itself. Summary 5524
Metric Hockett's metric
Summary: Refusal to give a machine (or state, or input-valve, or transformation, etc) a particular value corresponds to talking about a set of machines (or states, or input-values, or transformations, etc). The set has no associated probabilities, but can use the concept of "independence". 5666.7
