Indeed Harv, how can things of ultimate reality be representable? If ultimate means "nothing missing", you must interact directly with it, surely? Where does that leave "representation", but as non-ultimate by definition?

Is "representation" approximation, or partial, or a little fuzzy, or not the same as the real thing?

You can not know ULTIMATE Michael Jordan just from his representation in the words "Michael Jordan", can you?

Ultimately, only Michael Jordan meeting God knows Michael Jordan? Or those who meet him in a state of perfect communion with God?

Ultimate representation of Michael Jordan is by Michael Jordan, living in communion with Existence (God), isn't it?

We are not ignorant of ulimate reality. We interact directly with it every day. Like you interact with your computer. Just my word use "your computer" may be open to debate on definition precision and agreement.
