Hmmmm.  I didn't see anything in your post that seemed like an actual
problem for my view.

As I think my "virtual-gas" example illustrated, meaning is
subjective, like conscious experience.  That shared property of
subjectivity is significant I think.

What I think I can safely say is:  meaning is a facet of conscious
experience, not something that exists separately from (or independent
of) conscious experience.

I think a facet/gemstone analogy is appropriate here:  The facet
doesn't exist separate from the gemstone, and can't be considered
independently of the gemstone.  Neither can the gemstone be considered
independently of it's facets.

Conscious experience being the gemstone, and 'meaning' be a facet of
that gemstone, of course.  (Just trying to reduce the target size for
Brent's one-line zingers!)
