If our understanding is organized in layers, then:
- whenever there are too many layers for us to build, the presented concept would appear too cumbersome;
- if there is nothing new to add to our internal webwork or ideas, we label the text as boring and/or trivial;
- “nice reading” is when we can use whatever is at our disposal to get the meaning and to add one or two new festoons to our own mind’s garments without much effort;
- and “fascinating” or “encouraging” is when the concepts presented, even if we can’t get them immediately, lure us into building yet another layer of meanings for ourselves, just in order to be able to finally decrypt the message which those strangely beautiful reverberances of somebody else’s mind seem to be holding within.
