Interpreting Games: Meaning Creation in the Context of Temporality and Interactivity

Abstract

The concept of interpretation applied to texts, videos, pictures, posts and all other types of media is varied. Objects are open to different forms of interpretation and games, as objects of meaning, are no exception. Explicating meaning creation in games will create a better understanding of game functions and their effects. This study explores how games alter the process of meaning creation through investigating their detailed properties and differentiation from other forms of media as objects of interpretation. This study argues that understanding meaning creation in games entails more than an examination of the presentation layer by a deeper analysis that considers interactivity and temporality. It contends that due to the interactive nature of games, the role of player participation is vital because gamers influence the operative mechanics of games and hence their meanings.

Therefore, in order to win full precision in handling the temporal issues regarding tax law

Secularizing a Religious Legal System: Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction in Early Eighteenth Century England

express mention of those two by name, yet I believe they are seldom found among the crimes presented: For what reason I cannot conceive, unless it be, that the laws of the state have appointed temporal penalties for them. But as there is nothing in those laws that has taken away the authority of the Church, so is there no cause why the exercise of that authority in these particulars should be discontinued; at least, till we see the temporal laws executed with greater zeal and better effect.

Cleaning the Muck of Ages from the Windows into the Soul of Tax

. There is also a temporal dimension in tax. Bracket creep, when increases in wage move workers into higher marginal tax rates, is an important part of any slow, ongoing increased taxation on workers and possibly, depending on the level of wage increases, decreasing or helping to decrease after tax living standards, too. The introduction of the GST in Australia from 1 July, 2000, is a case in point. It was accompanied by income tax cuts whose value was eroded over time through bracket creep. One estimate is that by 2005/2006, bracket creep had clawed back $3.8 billion
