"These ambiguities, redundancies and deficiencies remind us of those which Dr.
Franz Kuhn attributes to a certain Chinese encyclopaedia entitled The Celestial
Emporium of Benevolent Knowledge. In its remote pages it is written that the
animals are divided into:
a. belonging to the Emperor
g. stray dogs
h. included in this classification
i. trembling like crazy
k. drawn with a very fine camelhair brush
l. et cetera
m. just broke the vase
n. from a distance look like flies"
No conclusions, just a sense of impending overload.
