The Limits Of Language

The Limits Of Language

The limits of language are the limits of our world. Meaningful language can only describe what can be logically represented, and what falls outside this realm should remain unsaid.

A Proposition Is A Picture Of Reality

A Proposition Is A Picture Of Reality

Language functions as a picture of reality. Words and propositions are like pictures that represent the facts of the world, and the meaning of language lies in its ability to mirror these facts accurately.

The Idea Of Solipsism

The Idea Of Solipsism

Solipsism – the view that only the self exists while the external world is an illusion – grasps at something true but can't be meaningfully articulated. Solipsism represents the inexpressible nature of self and world – philosophy's task isn't to speak the unspeakable, but to acknowledge language's limits through logical analysis, avoiding profundity, and sticking to what can be stated.

What Goes Around May Not Come Around

What Goes Around May Not Come Around

Ideas like karmic causality and universal justice offer only reassuring myths that impose moral order on an underlying reality that’s likely indifferent. They describe statistically useful patterns and project hopeful narratives instead of the purposeless machinery of existence. We imaginatively mythologize order from chaos because the alternative is profoundly unsatisfying. But reality simply is.

Where One Cannot Speak, There One Must Remain Silent

Where One Cannot Speak, There One Must Remain Silent

There are limits to what can be expressed in language, and some aspects of reality, particularly profound or mystical ones, are beyond the reach of linguistic representation. Our words subtly attest to language's limits by using its logical structure in meaningful ways.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
