"What are representations used for? They explain one thing by means of another. The object we want to understand is the 'thing': the thing-in-itself, the source. The object that we know quite a bit about already, to which we compare the source via a representation, we call the standard object.  It is the site of appearance, the target."  (Avner Ash & Robert Gross, Fearless Symmetry: Exposing the Hidden Patterns of Numbers)
