But something not present in the venue got transmitted from one to the other via the use of the venue; the knowledge that the tomatoes were okay to eat. If you can point to the external location of that knowledge in the venue, please do so. If you can explain how that performance can be meaningful without knowledge (that is, without being meaning- driven), please do so. But you can't; it's quite simply impossible.
