Language is meaningless

Or perhaps not.

Language requires both parties have the same meaning to the tokens used. What determines this is how meaning is assessed: is it done in the abstract, to make the terms cooperate; in the social, to make the terms convenient to social meaning; or in an abstract-realist method, where terms must correspond to the structures found in reality.

I don't see the point in blaming language, or even brain images of reality. Intent is what matters.

The greatest indicator of intent is either ego, or the lack of ego.
Does one say what he says, or argue, for himself, or for the whole?
