Description

Meaning of symbols and space can be changed on demand, it does not need to be defined globally unique. For example, vertical position can have a different meanings at each axis of an parallel coordinate plot, while having no meaning in between the axes. There even can be no explicit definition of the meaning of space. For example, in interactive environments users can sort objects by positioning them in space. With each new object they can refine or change the meaning of positions, while never having an explicit mapping.
