Each opposite Adverse enshrined in the other side. For example, Micro enshrined in the Macro, and vice versa. and how language is the central institution of any society. The implication is that human thought is programmed by a pre-determined set of coordinates: a language. @Geimas considering myth and narrative, in a fashion which, from a distance at least, seems akin to that of Lévi-Strauss, game priority to structural relations between narrative entities rather than to their intrinsic qualities. Each character play a specific role of ‘hero’ or ‘villain.’ Small number of functions’ or story action(Propp 1968).

Separation is largely a rhetorical device. All statement, rather than ‘communicating’, do something, even those that appear to be constative in their orientation.

It is not only for the statement, but also by objects. The communication between the human and object ‘do’ something each other. However the performative communication is not active but ‘show’, rather than ‘vocalising’ but ‘configuring (see [[Frame]]’s #Configuration).

#Searle argues that ‘meaning’ consists of an attempt by one speaker to have an effects on another speaker in an arena of communication bound by certain rules.  “Promise” – which evidences the combination that he has posited as constitutive of the illocutionary act.

Searle said this is the ‘partnership’ rather than an exclusive executive role. It is not socially constituted by the illocutionary act but participate in the constitution of the act as an illocution. Ultimately, the act is not socially constituted by the action, but the participation of the act is #Communication. The relationship between the performer and viewer continuously changing in a course of the communication. > ‘Startement’
