Example text

Usually part of a following sequence, placed in a string of words, a symbol’s meaning aims toward what might be happening next, in a possible future. In Chapter 4 we shall call this kind of unfolding toward what is coming next a “hovering” effect. Because symbols occur in coded strings of meaning, like sentences or paragraphs, they occur primarily as 1-D signs. These three kinds of signs are oriented in time toward the present, the past, and the future. The three kinds of signs will become useful as we study, in Chap.

The objects in a sequence often touch one another. They are adjacent in a string. They abut one another within a common border. If they are next to each other, they are contiguous, that is, they are in contact; they rub shoulders with each other in a parade, like the railroad cars on a train, with their coupling links, or the concatenation of dominoes falling in a linear sequence. When you watch a three-year-old child assembling dining-room chairs into a train, you know that this is an act of creative play that is teaching about following sequences.

30 We take up the issues of justice and judgment in Chap. 5. 31 It visualizes justice and truth as icons on a balance scale. So it combines the mechanics of measurement with the idea of justice into a new unity. It shows Thoth measuring the ashes of a person on the arm of the scale, over and against the feather of truth, a symbol of Ma-at. Had the person lived a good life? Notice that Thoth has his fingers poised on a weight that can move along a sliding scale to get the right ratio of weight and distance.
