I coined it:)   It means to move your attention from an arrow to it's
object.

before vance:

          attention
              |
              |
------------------------> (object)

after vance:

                                         attention
                                              |
                                              |
------------------------> (object)

It would be a method on the attention object.  Note the conceptual
similarities to dereference.
