Hi Aurino,

Thank you for your reply.

I'm short of time, away quite a bit so delays in replies.

Centrifugal force: but please be serious about it, to follow the analogy.

"broad defining" : example: the word "communication" is a very broad way of defining the word "telephone". Too broad, as there are other forms of communication it appears.

The equations: Newton's gravitation equation says the constant of gravitation = mass one times mass two, divided by the distance between them squared.

I'm saying that you can imagine a distance in meaning between words in a dictionary; and that the "meaning" of a word is a concept like "mass".

I'm suggesting that if you look at all the ways that words "contain" each other re: their meaning in a dictionary; Newton's equation might describe this.

The meaning of a word times the meaning of another word: all possible paths (through meanings of other words) that connect those words could be the m1m2. Divide that m1m2 by: the distance between these words, times the distance between these words.

That is, divide by the paths that do not connect these words times the paths that do not connect these words.

That is, divide by all permutations and combinations of words that couldn't connect those two words.

So we have: all possible meanings that connect the two words, divided by all possible meanings that do not connect the words.

You get a constant?

Relativity may fit into this system.
