It does also make sense to say that different messages will have the
same/ an alike meaning to you and me, and it would also make sense

As such no ! Once a message is said it will stay that way, just the
ways of interpretation, of how we interpretate, what we might belief
or what we disagree with will be changed due to the contents of the
Once a message have been said our own, individual conceptual context
will surround it_ we will make the message our ' own '.
You can never be absolute about what have been said, because
somewhere, someone will differ its meaning, how insignificant that
difference will and can be.

shift in space/ time makes it everytime different.
The thousands of handwritings are making the message each time
