Cubist Programming?

In The Stuff of Thought by Steven Pinker, the book talks about human minds being able to hold multiple viewpoints simultaneously about the same event, and that resonates with my ideas for Existential Programming. It also reminded me of my thoughts that Cubism tried to illustrate the same idea. Cubist paintings simultaneously attach different viewpoints of something to the same single "object" (as Existential Programming would have different viewpoints/models of the same "data entity" kept together in the same object).

So, Existential Programming might well have been named Cubist Programming!
