Wittgenstien

As a result of the “proofs” I have been doing it was recommended that I read some Wittgenstien. A proto-positivist, he believed in speaking only to what could be verified and as such did not have high regard for Metaphysical thinking. He also thought of structure of language as a set of rules based on use, which is to say that meaning is defined by use. Use, as in how the word is used, is an arbitrary construct and that nonsense is a word that has no rules of use or a word that is not be used in an agreed upon way. Furthermore, some words are used without our really knowing exactly what they mean, their boundary of meaning is funny, and we only realize that we don’t really understand it. Beauty is one such word. Beauty is a relative term. In the following proofs, words are used thinking of them in this “fuzzy” way.
