So good. "The drawings clearly show diverse interpretations of energy and most are vastly different from the ways in which energy is regularly communicated by energy companies through the media and the energy infrastructure. As we have seen, none of these drawings show energy meters or bills and none of them use the visual language of these dominant interfaces. Numbers primarily feature in mathematical equations, not in relation to amounts of energy used." This could be done with almost any term you care to name, and the results would make clear the complex and divergent interpretations each of us has on what are otherwise seen as basic and core concepts. 47 page PDF.
