Theory & Facts (Figure & Ground)

Posted · Add Comment

A fact without a theory
Is like a ship without a sail,
Is like a boat without a rudder,
Is like a kite without a tail.

But one thing worse
In this universe
Is a theory without a fact
– George Schultz

Facts and Theory are related to each other like figure and ground (as reflected in this design); one cannot exist independent of the other.
