A =/= A aka Confusion

This situation represents confusion or loss of focus or even a lie.  It says that we have used the same name to represent two different things.  Usually this happens when we are confused or are intentionally corrupting our mind or the mind in our community.

This frequently happens in advertisements and TV commercials especially during political campaigns. 

It even happens in jokes where it creates humor .


When this happens too much we can no longer usefully think with the symbols involved.  Our minds become scrambeled and chaotic.

thanks Todd Schnick for the illustration.

Can you read/write the title equation in English as it stands so that it makes sense?
  • don't explain it as you have already
  •  as an example A = A reads A equals A
  • A=/=A reads ?
  • A = divided by =A ....
A not identical to A.
Then the / means not while in other typography it is something else like "¬" see this. The extra = got left out of your "reading" .


well sure ok.   perhaps "=/=" should be spelled "¬≡".   perhaps that is stable in fastblogit, perhaps not.   i was going for a easy spelling of the symbol with my keyboard.

Maybe the token is not logic; maybe it is just a token - eh?  Maybe I coin the word "turdkin" to cover refer to it.

Further elaborating, I say that a turdkin is something begotten in a hurry - sometimes accompanied by the sound of a grunt or what I call an urnt!

Google thinks you're talking about a turducken .

inevitably a concatenation of marks gets its meaning interpreted by a human withing the context of its appearance. 

since there are many humans, we do get many interpretations.

the trick, of course, is to communicate real information from human to human with these marks.

it seems to work in many many cases. 

what more is there to say.
