Marcus, Christophe,

If the abstract things that we imagine are inanimate, then it may be
interesting to see logical primitives to contain parts of a proto-meaning.

Like the meaning of magnetism is eg the direction of the needle and the
meaning of a coil, a spring, is what we call form stability, the meaning of
information can be observed in groups of primitives while they team up
during a reorder.

Nice approach of both of you.
