I have argued here before that all forms of communication are full of arbitrary signs. Arbitrary signs, symbols, identities, whatever, are the basic tools of human existence and especially of human communication. This is not to say that there is no meaning in life, but on the contrary. Meaning is a production. When one attempts to communicate, one produces meaning. But equally, the attempt at understanding an attempt to communicate is also a production of meaning. The interpreter at her/his best attempts to produce a meaning that is closest to the perceived meaning of the original communicator. But never does a text, like the Bible, have any meaning inside of it. Its reader produces meaning and lays it on top of the text.
