 I - Interpretation


Interpretation: Assignment of meanings to symbols, signs or gestures, or indeed any thing at all.

For human beings, any kind of thing and any kind of event may be interpreted as meaning anything at all, since anything may be taken by the human mind as a sign or symbol for anything.
