That’s not my meaning.

I had a dream last night that my friend was putting jigsaw puzzle pieces together in such a way as to create a new puzzle. He’d gathered many puzzles together and was putting them together in blocks of color – taking nature scenes and photos and turning them into abstract squares of color and line. I was about to tell him he was doing the puzzles wrong before I realized that his way was better, that making his own picture was creating something beautiful where there was not something before. The jigsaw pieces meant something different to him than they did me. I was attracted to what one was SUPPOSED to do with them but his meaning was better.
