It’s funny, in a way, that there’s two sets of arrows on a keyboard. Considering what a keyboard is, there’s no way we could have avoided such a “quantum semiotics” (using quotes because I don’t know what that even means, not because that’s what it’s called).

Sometimes when I talk to people, I come to the understanding that they think I’m talking about the ‘character-arrows’(semantic), when I’m really talking about the ‘command-arrows’(syntactic)

Because, I guess, after all you can’t really talk about the command arrows; they’re made to put you somewhere else, not talk about or refer to somewhere else.

Is conversation to transfer information, or to modify cognition by the process of the transfer of information?
