status update: i have not fallen off the map. i’ve been under influence. of a creepy virus, freely donated by countless students.
when i am not asleep, or in class, i read. and suddenly here was this need to quote this to the wide world, which is limited only by my perception:
6.43 If good or bad willing changes the world, it can only change the limits of the world, not the facts; not the things that can be expressed in language.
In brief, the world must thereby become quite another. It must so to speak wax or wane as a whole. The world of the happy is quite another than that of the unhappy.
6.431 As in death, too, the world does not change, but ceases.
6.4311 Death is not an event of life. Death is not lived through.
If by eternity is understood not endless temporal duration but timelessness, then he lives eternally who lives in the present.
from Ludwig Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus.
so today my world is kinda grey and cold-ish. with a construct of yellow and grey leaves on top.
