Obviously, images translate themselves to secondary meanings, secondary levels of verbiage, to different people. A burning lit match results in various meanings to different people.
• a smoker trying to quit cigarettes
• an environmentalist conservationist hiking through pine needles red pine woods

Different situations involving these

Different degrees of intentions intensity are expressed for the same image of a match:
• a cold night

• a homeless vagrant pulling kindling together in a trash can
• a garage attendant standing by a spilled can of gas/fuel

Recently NPR spoke of a gentleman in England trying to soften the return the swastika back to its previous meaning, back to a peace symbol and not a WWII emblem of hatred or violence,

The reaction of those surviving

 His argument centers on the original meaning of internal peace spiraling out into the universe —the same symbol used by the Hopi tribe and other First Americans.

As it stands, many people who fear the return of a banality and casual nature towards the whole fascist movement feel threatened by the gentleman’s intentions.

Are either (illegible) totally?

So where does this lead?
