This all helps makes the case that definitions really don't matter.

This is the confusion I wrote about. Human constructs are subject to 
definition, and, Humpty-Dumpty notwithstanding, shared definition 
facilitates communication (good). Definition of natural entities or 
processes freezes their understanding at a point in time (bad).
