It is always interesting, how many completely different interpretations, receivers of the same communication can have (this happens in all forms, including text). It seems it involves what the receiver brings to the communication, which raises havoc with the idea of intentionality in art.

Having recently witnessed a pop/rock show at a large facility, and watching the "performers" jump about so as the audience in further seats might establish from whence the noise was emanating (to aim adoration or tomatoes), I thought about this question of authenticity. Why do we pay such importance to meaning in communication? Do we think we will learn something useful, that maybe we have been missing? Maybe, sometimes, even Dylan is just about tapping one’s foot.

In absence of any really important news, in the last few millennium, perhaps some of us have gotten more proficient at taking on the superficial aspect of imparting great, important meaning. Perhaps the noise of this group, sometimes obscures one that might truly have something to say. This discrepancy could be at the root of hip. Hippness being the attunement to the obscure and the disdain of the fodder of the masses.

And like the shadow do, I to, go on!
