Same idea applies to most things. I tend to view what is seen in one dimension as superficial because it only is true in one sense and that is as it pertains to that one specific thing at that one specific time.
Deeper things incorporate more than one dimension. They encompass multiple areas allowing for a deeper association, understanding, more worldly views, experiences, knowledge, or feelings.
That was the answer that I kept coming back to for myself. However, I think that the intention is important as well, even if that does lead to some uncertainty about whether it could be or not.
It can lead to arguments if you're discussing it with someone. Like if you read too much into something, say a poem, but your friend didn't, there would be an inconsistency there. That's what I meant.
Just before I came to check the forum right now, I was thinking about how sick I am of debating stupid people over what is stupid.
I traced it down to a lack of depth by preference. Its like skinny and fat people. Some people can eat a very small meal and feel satisfied and content and others need more food to feel the same reaction.
If I told the skinny person they hadn't eaten enough they would probably disagree since they feel the same as I do, full. They may even argue that I ate entirely too much.
I doubt either is wrong, it is just different. Lol, this is very if a tree falls in the forest.....
So I was having an argument with myself awhile back over whether some songs could be considered "deep" or not, and I couldn't really come up with a good answer. Is something "deep" if it talks about emotions? Or if it has a layered meaning? Or is it even describable? And the truth is, I don't know. I can't know. At least not in a way that I can argue with someone why *this* is "deep" while *that* isn't. I'm just going to have to be subjective. So, I want your opinion.
What would you consider to be "deep"?
EDIT: I'm asking for your opinion in general, not just songs.
I think deep is simply anything that communicates a complex message of some sort
