It has no "meaning" in either connotation, or denotation. It is just a "definite article". Some languages have it; Spanish in two genders and cases, German in three genders and four cases. Others don't; definitely Japanese, possibly Chinese, as well.

Mine was a general comment about this thread's direction but feel free to resort to personal putdowns. It is, after all, THE Internets.
