Meaning as a function of consequence?

The fact remains that meaning, and its perception, as seen from the logotherapeutic angle, is completely down to earth rather than afloat in the air or resident in an ivory tower….the perception of meaning, as I see it, more specifically boils down to becoming aware of a possibility against the background of reality or, to express it in plain words, to becoming aware of what can be done about a given situation.

—Viktor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning, (Boston: Beacon Press, 2006), 144.
