Each thing has meaning in itself and describes her/his/it's self. Each thing is a living speaking "God," whether it speaks words or not. This is not to be confused with a word or words in an endless meaningless cycle, which are only approximate, biased definitions based on the senses and other words. Meaning unfolds from what has been folded into it in the first place. Things are not born into the universe, they unfold what has been enfolded into them in this one and only infinite dimensional hologramatic universe. (Each thing is in the universe and the universe is in each thing.) Each thing describes what it means and describes the path it has been on for at least the past 50 billion years.
"Edwina was a mute, but you could understand her meaning by her actions, or lack of them, even when she slept." " 'Life' is it's own meaning, and so is the 'universe,' that is why no one can come up with a definition in words to these basic questions of the 'meaning of life' or the 'meaning of the universe,' that makes any sense."
