You should work to reduce your biases, but to say you have none is a sign that you have many.

(MG: Пам'ятати завжди, особливо, коли говориш в статистичних термінах)

Models are opinions embedded in mathematics. Whether or not a model works is also a matter of opinion.

The thing is, nobody outside those familiar with model theory know the difference between a model and a theory.

It's like with programming languages - on most occasions people that are totally clueless are eager to create a new programming language. Usually a corporate one.

In theory, theory and practice are the same.

See, it's relevant; it's just not in popular discourse yet. But I believe it will be there soon. That's almost next step after Category Theory.

Ну.. модели проверяются, так что последнюю фразу второго утверждения я не понимаю.

А, понятно.

Дык какая же модель без границ применимости и т.д.
