For his part, Nishida maintained that “meanings and judg‐ ments are an abstracted part of the original experience, and com‐ pared with the actual experience they are meager in content.”12 James called concepts “static abstractions” taken from the original “given” in experience: concepts are like the “perchings” of birds in flight, just temporary resting places chosen to stop the incessant flight of experience. Concepts are fixations on a limited aspect of that flow for practical purposes. But there are more smells, col‐ ors, textures, and shapes in experience than we have names for. The color chips in a paint store, for example, while outstripping previously limited color choices, can never reach a full display of the infinite color variations possible. Each color chosen is a static fixation on one point in the color spectrum, while the additional experiences of color variations are inexhaustible.
