A few more thoughts on the problem of "Integrating Frameworks" (IFs).

When I think about IFs in historical terms, there are a couple of 19th-shading-into-20th Century systems that come to mind:

1. Peirce's triadic sign relations, that make it possible to imagine all intellectual interchange about whatever worlds you care to name taking place inside of one big three-column relational database table.

2. Riemann's manifolds, that would be there when Einstein needed them to correlate the otherwise discrepant observations that different observers make from diverse and sundry reference frames.

As it happens, there is a connection between these two ideas — there are triadic relations resting irreducibly at the core of both systems.
