All "cognition is cognition in models and by models"
by Herbert Stachowiak, 1973

The human spirit is unable to think other ways than in models.
by Christian Wissel, 1989

Thought is the activity or process of modeling, which the evolution of models in brain. Ideas, as the content for cognition, which are models. A person thereby is a Model-Driven System.

To model our thought process in a computer-aided, visual, graphic way... very interesting ideas.

"Thinking in Models" is precisely the principle of ABSE: It does not impose precise semantics, only simple action and association rules. The goal of ABSE is to model our thought process. The ABSE tree tries to mimic the human associative brain.

“business artefacts” vs.(?!) “IT artefacts”
Good expression!

The key to my solution is the "model-driven" – at RUN TIME, but not (only) the Model-Driven Software Development. I’ ll share my thought here later…

I do agree much.


In this light, it is interesting to think about the relations between: terms, categories, classes, glossaries, diagrams, preciseness, looseness, comprehensibility, models, code, design, code as design, agility and specifically the impact to "business artefacts" vs.(?!) "IT artefacts".
