This paper demonstrates that the need for better communication in science and technology is part of a larger collective need for communication systems in every area of man's endeavors and developments. Second, due to the nature of knowledge, an argument is made for the necessity of a “superstructure” capable of structuring knowledge in a way analogous to man's facility of understanding. Communication in science and technology is then seen as the ongoing internal maturation of the mosaic of the superstructure which then serves us as a powerful tool for communicating, applying, and furthering knowledge. The conclusion is that the necessary superstructure is attainable only through a collective development which would not only satisfy the communication needs of this group, but of every group in need of better communication systems.
