Deeper Meaning Usefulness

Knowledge is the recitation of fact.
If you know something you do not necessarily understand it.

Understanding is the application of these facts.
If you understand something it is not necessarily meaningful.

Meaning is the value to you or others.
If you know meaning you know something.

If videos are not meaningful I am usually quite bored.

From 8 1/2

Is this what the web has helped to perpetuate?...
Guido's quote from Fellini's 8 1/2:

"I really have nothing to say...
...but I want to say it just the same."

But to counter this is another quote made by the critic in the movie, I believe it is quoted from Stendhal (Beyle)...

"The self-centered [person] who cherishes themself alone will end up strangling in their own emotions."
