What can we do with talk?

So, what can we do with talk? Well, we can describe the world (in several equally true ways) and then use these descriptions to manipulate the world and make predictions about it. We cannot, however, fuse all possible true descriptions into a single description, because all of them are true and they are different.

Fundamentally, this difference is the difference between talk and what we talk about.
