"Making Sense" & agreeing on what things are called - Page 3

post #61 of 64
I was talking with someone about this the other day, it'll never happen, not until the day everybody is manufactured with the same brain.

The motions we use in skiing is intuitive, it's not like mathematic or physics where you can fit everything neatly into theorems, and everybody has different way to describe and understand things. But that's exactly what xSIA are trying to do, fitting them into rigid framework of names, and we have a bunch of awkward jargons that most people don't understand as a result. It's like going down stairs fast, you just do it, you don't keep thinking "left foot right foot left foot right foot", in fact you'll probably trip and fall if you do.

Words often get in the way when we seek standardization. Add the fact that philisophical differences exist among different organizations and arriving at one set of terms and definitions seems very unlikely.

Words are poor substitutes for activities and experiences.  No matter the activity, each individual will have a difference experience.  A picture is worth 1000 words...at least.  YM
