RE: [xml-dev] [OT] An online course in semantics, meaning, and symbolic understanding?

You may want to research the Voyager 1 project and the work that went
into creating the record that was sent with it in case it encountered an
alien civilization.  I don't know if that is available but the problem
you describe is similar or ... seems to be. ;)  As I dimly recall it
made assumptions about shared contexts such as knowing the construction
of hydrogen.

You cannot escape being in the same universe.  That is an assumption.
You cannot assume what the outermost braces are.  Pointy or roundy or
just spacey?

Subject: [xml-dev] [OT] An online course in semantics, meaning, and
symbolic understanding?

Hi Folks,

I want to take a course in semantics, meaning, and symbolic
understanding.  I want to understand better what it means to not have
any a priori understanding of something.  Then, I want to try to
communicate something meaningful without depending on shared
definitions, concepts, or frameworks.

Do you know of an online course that offers this type of instruction?
