The whole and its parts

The whole & its parts

Meaning changes

It can be a joyful experience and it can be a frustrating one.

And it’s probably not avoidable. Meaning previously found in a document or visual changes whenever there is a new encounter with that same document or visual.

It’s an experience I have with some texts and podcasts.

I’ve found it fun and even more interesting to approach content wondering what new meaning or understanding will emerge this time around.

I found it recomforting and humbling.

It’s recomforting as it transforms the learning process into something that can only happen one step after another. It’s humbling as whatever one has understood is incomplete and subject to change.
