Re: Music

I didn't know Sharon Tate was such a beautiful woman. Screw Manson.

Re: Derived from Nothing

The universe derives it's entire 'shape' (which naturally includes every possible aspect of our experience and all that lies beyond) from nothing, simply because there does not exist anything in Reality from which it can derive it. That's precisely why it is the way it is. There is no such 'thing' ...

Re: Who- why- where are we ?

First, what I say about logic does not require any expertise in Wittgenstein. It is far more basic than that. As I said before, it was a mistake to go into the subtleties. Second, you cannot just pluck out odd sentences, you need to know what the Tractatus is about. In Tractatus, an elementary prop...

Re: Who- why- where are we ?

Your claim was that I had made up the term 'atomic propositions'; that was not true. That was not my claim. You need to read again what I said: That clauses and propositions can be embedded in many levels only means that they can't be more or less complex, not that they are not valid. The need for ...

Re: Who- why- where are we ?

The need for "being atomic" is an invention of yours. It really isn't. Google 'atomic proposition' or 'atomic sentence'. Or you might look it up yourself and find the related concept of "molecular propositions", valid in logic. If you read Russell and Wittgenstein, I'm sure you will not miss it. Th...
