Paper Abstract

Most published works on the subject of Linguistic Geometry, especially, those published in the 90s, are limited to Abstract Board Games where players' moves are either immediately known or perfectly known after some time delay. The method has potential application to more realistic representations of human competition or conflict where all knowledge has some probability of being mistaken, or in the presence of intentional deception by an adversary. Real world experience indicates that the greatest failures in conflicts originate from false "knowledge" taken to be true rather than from lack of knowledge or uncertain perceptions correctly assessed as such. Will Rogers, Jr. put it most succinctly when he said: "It's not what you don't know that hurts you. It's what you think you know that ain't so."
