I have before claimed that the computer is
a good example of the power of semiosis.
It is simple enough to see that the mere
construction of a Turing machine confers
upon that machine the ability to recognise
all computations; to generate the yield of
In this sense, a program (the source code)
is a sequence of signs that upon acceptance
brings the machine to generate some
corresponding yield; a computation.
Also, the intention of an entity behind sign
origination has nothing whatsoever to do with
the acceptability of that sign by some other
entity, much less the meaning there taken for
The meaning of a sign is always centered upon
the acceptor of that sign.
