Replying to LO28177 --

Andrew, you quoted: "When you hear that something you do not know is like
something you do know, you know them both." ( From the later Mohist

I think this principle is the source of a lot of mischief. To take what
you hear and put it in one of the boxes you already have is to see the
similarities, and miss the differences, the uniqueness of the new thing.
The problem is that we do think we "know them both." In fact, we don't
know the new if we merely see it as similar to the old.

We are always hearing from people who first learn about our work that it's
like cognitive therapy, or NLP, or something else. There is some
relationship between what we do and those disciplines, but there are more
differences, which never get seen because they think they understand it as
"like cognitive therapy."
