What meaning is?

Postby oushi » Fri Jan 18, 2013 9:54 am

People trying to express things, provide statements which are based on meaning. What is this meaning? If a meaning is solid and unshakable, it becomes truth. So things are true if they have solid meaning. But meaning, by definition, is only relation to the object it describes, not the object itself. We intellectually know if we "posses" meaning. Echo of an experience is being crystallized into meaning, which is then taken as truth. It can be said, that we know through meaning. "Self" is a meaning of experiences experienced by individual. Asking about "self" will be just asking for different meaning. But if we take away meaning, the what? What do we take away and what is left?

Reading a statement does not mean one understands the meaning.....but without a statement/expression, the meaning cannot be grasped by the opposite.

If we were to take away the meaning.....then one is left with a statement/expression.....then a meaning will be applied as per receiver.....it is like asking a question but don't answer it.
What do we take away?.....the meaning of the expression/statement.
What is left?.....the expression/statement is still there.

.....meeting of minds?.....

There is production of meaningless sound in the context of larynge. Meaningless sound meets ear. Meaning arises. This may metaphorically be narrated as "Someone teaches something." although actually nothing has been taught but meaningless sound has been produced and meaningless sound has met ear and meaning has arisen. It may also be metaphorically narrated as "Mind has been transmitted." although mind cannot be found and nothing actually has been transmitted but meaningless sound. :sage:
