Yes, this might be a good distinction to draw: that between symbol-level
reflection and knowledge-level reflection. Although the version of the
hypertext tree was without formulae (due to my ship's LAN managers'
paranoia and despite Tril's and my own efforts), it is obvious that the
authors have caught on to a specialized application of the ideas we are
working with. I'm going to study this much further to see how it would
work in a homo-iconic environment with a much richer set of mathematical
logics to draw on for reasoning. Just about everything they mention
will help us in one way or another.
