Averages and Clouds

AVERAGE: Every average is a number embedded in a cloud or sea of information so that the whole of it, be it a real cloud, a cannonball, a bus or dragon fly — can be disregarded and dealt with by a single entity that we call the “Mean.”

A Mean is a single number used as a “Stand-In” or substitute and replacement for the entire R-E-A-L-I-T-Y. Indeed, that is not a whole lot of information. So why do we waste so much effort collecting information on averages that do much more to mislead and anesthetize our intellect and curiosity more than anything else?
