What is "prediction?"

How do you define that?

Against what background ?

Is something "prediction" if it is already in your definition of a thing (E.g. your definition of "background geometry", "object", "movement", "space", "time", "orbit", "angle", "precession", "you" (?), "who you are talking to", "how you are talking", "how you think they are perceiving your communication", "orbit", etc.

Lot of meetings of definitions there. Meetings of meetings. Free association meets (freely asociates) with free association? How do you define "number"?

(Due to internet cost am not here much presently)
