comment What is the “exposure triangle”?
@mattdm: Anecdotal evidence no proof. As you well know, analogies are methods to convey simple understanding. At some point they break down, as you so masterfully demonstrate--a reason why arguing by analogy is a logical fallacy. Agreed, a triangle conveys more than just threeness, but isn't the mere fact that is one of the simplest objects to visualize with threeness apt to make it easy to remember the three aspects to exposure? On paper a bulleted list is easy enough, but how about in conversation? Do people remember simple shapes better than they do a short list of words?
