Semantics has no place in code

Semantics has no place in code. Ideally, code would have exactly one way of doing any given thing. In the world of data, we strive to be complete, unambiguous and exact. The world, as far as my code is concerned, is exactly as big as I tell it to be, and could only be so. What I define exists only insofar as I have defined it. The code expresses the sum-total of that world. To allow any sort of semantic nuance, we undermine the Platonic perfection of that world. I think the ideal should be to have a one-to-one relationship between virtual entities and the code that expresses them. This way, we can point at the code and say: "This is what it is."

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic
to be really something which I think I would never understand.

It seems too complex and very broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang
of it!

Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're
using? I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time selecting
between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most
blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Wahhabism is the ideological base of the Muslim Brotherhood and the founders
were all steeped in these teachings. The ubiquity and efficacy of mobile advertising,
including mobile gaming, are still at the immature stage; I believe that
the real magnitude of mobile advertising in the near future
could be massive, exceeding current estimates.
These trials let you try the games to see if you like them
or not.
