Pens and Texts

So, The writer when writing with a pen is transcendent to the pen. The pen only becomes a pen in the author’s hand because the pen’s purpose is to write and it needs the writer to do so. What about texts? Does the text need me to read it? Yes. Am I transcendent to the text? Sure but at the same time the text can change me. I am made by the text, perhaps especially when that text is scripture.
