text happens when humans try to make meaning.
whatever the meaning is of, whoever the receiver or transmitter be.
all meaning is constructed, all meaning has multiple segments; all meaning is biased, both culturally and personally.
i think i will go back to rabbanus maurus from here. then continue with aquinas. then move on to humboldt. and then, probably, my head will explode, and they will have to look for someone else to write this all up.
what happens to you, my reader, is text. this text. it happens because it first happened to me.
