Dear Willard,

can you suggest any other way to know something, than forming
its model in our mind? Is it possible to "know" something
per se, "as it is", or only its behaviour in our relation?
(i.e. how it appears, how it strikes our senses, how it
affects them). The system is a more advanced kind of model
to represent reality in a dynamic way, but in any case
knowledge can only be a representation of reality in our

Tito, an enthusiast (si dica quel che si vuole) of the
Systems theory.
