What has Meaning and therefore Value?

Anything has meaning - anything - that an individual gives meaning to - so if it is a refrigerator - or a jalapeno pepper that a person attributes meaning to or a medicine cabinet or a dead shark or a bunch of flies on the head of a dead cow - well then that has meaning- first to them and then it is for others to first give these items meaning and then acknowledge the meaning in these items as well - and then there you have it - the creation of an object of art - plain and simple - try it with a piano or a wooden spoon - it can work just as well - if and when a person with enough money is willing to put that money down in order to purchase that wooden spoon and then enough editors and critics become willing to write about the phenomenon that you made or declared the wooden spoon - found object a piece of art and that so and so decided that it was worth every bit of money that it took for him or her to win the item at auction or purchase it from you or a gallery somewhere in the great expanse of the Universe? Don't believe me? well then your life - your time and your efforts can go on forever wondering and pondering on all the questions of the Universe while others will continue on to make the rules and dictate what is what - and for you that has meaning!!! ……………………………………………. 7-8-2012G by Walter Paul Bebirian
