Semiosis, Symbol Processing

“A sign is that by which knowing we know something more.” (C. S. Peirce)

How do we cognitively, collectively, and intersubjectively produce all the meaningful “mores” in our symbolic systems?

a = >a

[not a mathematically possible notation, violates rule of identity, but meaning emerges by an additive inference instantiated/expressed in other symbolic form, Peirce’s interpretant]
