**Description**:

The skeleton of this narrative nonfiction book is a science fiction story without the usual mangling of physics. The flesh is composed of self-contained non-technical mainstream explanations and examples of the field of mathematics which deals with meaning, called Model Theory. Technical terms are avoided, except to occasionally serve as keywords.
