What is a Sign?
‘Sign’, from the Latin Signum, is a mark, an indication, a point, a reference.
A proper sign always does a two-step jingle. It both stands for itself and refers to something else.
What’s so special about this sign with the pointing arrow that reads: ‘New York’?
The sign ‘New York’ is both a sign that says ‘New York’ and a pointer to the State of New York. You read the sign ‘New York’ and follow it’s directions to the State of New York. [Check with a Professor of Semiotics, though.]
Language and Logic are expressed in Signs. The Alphabet and the Number System are structures of made-up of signs.
But the most important, intractable signs are those that bounce around in our head. Sign, like the Meta-Trinity: Thought, Mind and Consciousness, has this extraordinary ability to multiply and divide, while all the time remaining itself.
Sign doubles, while remaining single. Sign in other words, ‘Gives Birth to Itself’.
