 I wrote this with multiple you’s and multiple here’s in mind.
So causation is me writing the “you are here”.
My intention is the you is me referring to whoever the viewer is in the future.
But their perspective the “you” is their “I” usually, so that is pretty straight forward.
Yet what about here? Their “here” is true but it will seem “as if” I intended the “here” to mean where “I am” as it is a message “from me to them” so obviously the ‘here’ I’m referring to is my own and not the viewers and yet, I am referring to multiple heres at multiple points in space and time.
This differs from a community map in a park that says YOU ARE HERE because their anonymous authorship makes it into a benign message from the community-at-large, but coming personally from one person, a ‘you are here’
