      You fail and succeed with your misrepresentations. There is no one
      authority of meaning. And even if one bows to such, the personal and
      individual interpretation automatically invalidates that authority
      because it's personal and individual. Of course it's a burden to write,
      decide and act on what we think things mean, but one can't write/act
      without expecting someone to interpret differently. That will happen
      and it should. This is how we don't own and still remain responsible.
      To achieve such an impossibility isn't blissful.
