Hi Harv,

You wrote:"This is not a correct interpretation of my view. I am not saying that words acquire meaning by themselves."

Earlier you wrote,"What I am saying is that words acquire meaning by standardizing definitions based on shared experiences. Do you disagree?"

You had to use more words to explain it because that's not what you said the first time. I did not remember your referenced conversation with Dick from two months ago. It is necessary, when making a general proposition, to encode it entirely into the present prose.

I am glad that was not your view, but in petty self-justification, I plead that I did almost no interpretation, but only read exactly what you said and extrapolated necessary ramifications from those exact words.

My reply may be boring or useless. Sorry about that.
