Tractatus Pathetico-Poeticus [6.1-6.13]

6.1 The sentences of passion are contradictions.

6.11 Therefore the sentences of passion say everything. (They are synthetic sentences.)

6.12 That the sentences of passion are contradictions shows the substantial--pathetic--propriety of language and history.

6.13 Passion is not a heresy, but a shadow-image of history.
Passion is immanent.

OK...if you don't send the Tractatus Pathetico-Poeticus to me for the Angry Utopias--I mean it fits, right?--I'll be sad...

There are still a lot of loose ends to tie up, many unanswered questions, transpositions that still amaze and concern me. Proposition 6, for example. What the hell am I going to do with that? For now I'll just take your comment as a very appreciated compliment. Thank you.

I'm enjoying this very much, & find in it a semblance of utopia without the anger....

Hmmm...
