‘New York City’


new-york-direction-sign-k-9951-nyWhat’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.

A proper sign always does this two-step jingle. It both stands for itself and refers to something else. [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. Like ‘Thoughts‘.

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’.
