From the website:

Tabular programming

Tables are simple but powerful means to represent facts and to categorize the reality. Falcon tabular programming allows to control the overall program logic shaping the way business is often organized. Columns are properties, and row instances; a cell can contain any Falcon item, including OOP instances, classes, functions and even other tables. So, cells can be data, but also algorithms or even whole programs.

Tables are also excellent means to select behaviors between a finite set of choices, or to mix behaviors and merge them, providing ready-made fuzzy logic engines.

Also, tables can be applied more easily to categorize uncertain and shifting problems; in example, a simple structural modify to a problem may require the redesign of a class tree hierarchy, while adding a column that represent a new and formerly unknown aspect of a phenomenon can solve the problem altogether; and this can be done even at runtime, which is clearly not possible in the pure OOP model.
