Is the meaning of a text in the words themselves, or in their relationships? Is it in the context in which a text appears? The author, their intent, the medium?

I created a page to explore this.

It contains various snippets of texts that I read somewhere and found interesting. I didn't write them, though I've freely edited some on whims. I don't necessarily agree with them (whatever they mean), they are more like food to decontextualize.

They quotes are linked by the words common between them. I'll keep adding more to the page.

Hope you find reading and clicking around the page enjoyable, maybe even evocative. Here's the link to it again.
