A tautology is saying the same thing twice in different words.
Wittgenstein observed that all is a tautology of a tautology...this is both a circular statement and ironically equivalent to P=P.
The tautology as saying the same thing twice in different words can be observed as one symbol, or set of symbols, manifests itself into a new symbol or set of symbols.
These new symbols are variations of the old symbols.
The original symbol repeats itself through the new symbol.
The number line will be used as an example:
A line is one symbol. A line as two lines is a new symbol. This new symbol is the original symbol repeated in a new variation.
Thus the new symbol gains its identity not just through the looping of the old symbol, but through a variation of that loop. That variation is where an identity is composed of multiple loops looping together as one loop.
Al identities are thus one and many loops and are variables by nature much in the same way "x" contains both one and many meanings. It means one thing in one set of variables (x+y=z) and means another in another set of variables (x+a=b).
Logic and math, as analytical, create one loop and turn it to many thus paradoxically multiplying the problems they wish to solve.
All is a tautology of a tautology, thus circular and fallacious

the study of tight ropes is a tautology...

Everything is a tight rope at one time or another.
