Wikipedia is not The New Yorker. Sometimes there is no substitute for an equation.

And, as ideas are preserved and communicated by means of words, it necessarily follows that we cannot improve the language of any science without at the same time improving the science itself; neither can we, on the other hand, improve a science, without improving the language or nomenclature which belongs to it.―Antoine Lavoisier 1789 translated by Robert Kerr

As science needs new words, so does Wikipedia.

Never say higher or lower. It's not a useful distinction.
