|2009-02-13||On using patterned language
Why should one use structured language and not just make up words, or mix usages? Mutations are good for language too, but chance mutations on a base language. If you get caught up in foul language, figuratively speaking, it is difficult to build higher i.e. more complex structures. Or rather, it is difficult to distinguish between genuine complex structure and higher gibberish.
If standard language is like Hindustani classical music, gibberish is using improper notes or arbitrarily using internote frequencies. Higher structure, in that language, is Kishori Amonkar style mid-note ragas, which can be music to higher mathematicians.
