Continuing from yesterday....
The use or words and symbols on the container of a special object effects one's understanding of the object...it directs one's understanding of the object's meaning.
As I have demonstrated in numerous on-line art pieces the work itself may not inherently convey its own meaning. The meaning of the piece may be made explict, the meaning of the piece may be further suggested, the meaning of the piece may completely depend upon outside, meta-information.
This is true for containers for special objects and the objects themselves. A container with text upon it that indicates that its contents are special, subscribes to itself "special container" status. So too does it subscribe "special object" status to its contents.
