I am taking you into account, as it were, both in order to take you and in order to account for you. I am supposing that, in all this taking and accounting, I am, at the same time, taking account of you. This is surely to arrive at, what one might term, meaning. Meaning, in turn, is, at the same time, accountable and taken - that is to say, it is both burdened and ratified. Indeed, it is on account of its takenness that meaning is itself, that it is able to be itself.
