ME + me: More comments on Wittgenstein - 4 (bis)



I continue being not well, and otherwise also as before, so I cannot do much.

However, I did again make some more comments on Wittgenstein, and I have now  commented almost all the theses under 4.. and could do so because I slept somewhat better.

What I did today starts at 4.1212 - What can be shown, cannot be said. - and goes on till the end of 4.., that is 4.53, but I should add that this is the first version of the first version, and I have left some comments and pictures out till later.

Also note the Tractatus + comments are now in a new set of directories called Tractatus.                                                                                          


P.S. And since I think I have done enough for today, I refer you you to 4.. if you want to read more of what I wrote today.  

Also, I should say again that all of my edition of and comments on the Tractatus are in a state of flux, and will be for the time being. I have to do the work in this way or not at all, but will say at this place if and when I have finished my edition and comments, which I indeed much hope to do this year and indeed this month, but cannot guarantee in any way, what with ME.

P.P.S. It may be I have to stop Nederlog for a while. The reason is that I am physically not well at all. I don't know yet, but if there is no Nederlog, now you know the reason.

    "Ah me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!

No change, no pause, no hope! Yet I endure.
I ask the Earth, have not the mountains felt?
I ask yon Heaven, the all-beholding Sun,
Has it not seen? The Sea, in storm or calm,
Heaven's ever-changing Shadow, spread below,
Have its deaf waves not heard my agony?
Ah me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!
"
     - (Shelley, "Prometheus Unbound") 


    "It was from this time that I developed my way of judging the Chinese by dividing them into two kinds: one humane and one not. "
