A Model is a Simplification of Reality

Sophie: I’m a model, a model, a top model
Donna: A model is a simplification of reality

Our human, Missy, attended a training. At that training, it was about some software, they tought her what a model is. It seems that a model is a simplification of reality. Since Sophie says she’s a model, I looked up the definition of a model on the internet. It says:

DEFINITION OF A MODEL
A model is a representation containing the essential structure of some object or event in the real world.

Sophie has the essential structure of some object (in her case a cat) in the real world, so this makes sense, I think. Please read the following characteristics carefully:

CHARACTERISTICS OF MODELS
1. Models are necessarily incomplete.
2. The model may be changed or manipulated with relative ease.

Well, Sophie has a head, a tail and four legs. So I should say she’s physically complete. When you read the second characteristic, it becomes more clear. Sophie can be manipulated with relative ease. When she smells food she totally freaks out. Taking that in consideration, I can say Sophie is a model, a top model.

Donna: I’m a cookie, a cookie, a smart cookie
Sophie: Then I’m gonna eat ya … mjoaw, mjoaw …
