4th Entry of Lamentations by Frank Samperi
The pine trees outside the window take on a different intensity of evening light because of the partition that is glass. Should I see a metaphor in the light that falls from the roofs? And the garden? In turmoil because of the objects that break light? This strain to get clear of that which makes us notice the shadows — and yet sensing that one's fulfillment of difference is in just this moment amidst the garden's shadows: this remains unclear as long as the material ideal persists pyramidally.
Went down somewhere to see a Shinto festival — what strikes at once the uninitiated is its Spring-like air — that is, its material foundation is patent. It was lovely to see this procession moving along a river.
All in all this was one of the loveliest days for us here — the mountains even looked clearer — and the green more alive because of the children delighting in it.
Although we were caught in the Kyoto rush hour, our day was in a way the better for it.
To complain of loneliness — part to complain from a standpoint of a desideration of admiration.
4.128 Die logischen Formen sind zahllos.
Darum gibt es in der Logik keine ausgezeichneten Zahlen und darum gibt es keinen philosophischen Monismus oder Dualismus, etc.
(Logical forms are without number. Hence there are no privileged numbers in logic, and hence there is no possibility of philosophical monism or dualism, etc.)
5.556 Eine Hierarchie der Formen der Elementarsätze kann es nicht geben.
(There cannot be a hierarchy of the forms of elementary propositions.)
5.5561. . . Die Hierarchien sind, und műssen unabhängig von der Realität sein.
(. . . hierarchies are and must be independent of reality.)
Wittgenstein's Tractatus resolves itself in the throwing away of the "ladder" with the reverberating upshot of silence as its final transcendence (release). The conclusions (which is to say, therefore, the whole works) Eastern affinities make themselves manifest even in the "limited whole" and the stress of things that cannot be put into words which are presumably "functions" of the "mystical."
I don't feel as if I'm the one they wanted here — so much has been put down in order to deceive; therefore, my longing for a past time becomes increasingly intense — especially since the place proposed as a possible haven proves to be another mirage. But again as soon as I forget their importance or better realize the uselessness of their arguments, the sooner will I come to that clearing whose way leads a man toward a completion (fulfillment of a body of work. To imply that your work might be undertaken for the sake of imparting Hope to mankind is not altogether aside the point. . .
"Let us now ask: 'Can a human body have pain?' One is inclined to say: 'How can
the body have pain? The body in itself is something dead; a body isn't conscious!' And here again it is as though we looked into the nature of pain and saw that it lies in its nature that a material object can't have it. And it is as though we saw that what has pain must be an entity of a different nature from that of a material object; that, in fact, it must be of a mental nature. But to say that the ego is mental is like saying that the number 3 is of a mental or an immaterial nature, when we recognize that the numeral 3 isn't used as a sign for a physical object." The Blue Book
"The kernel of our proposition that that which has pains or sees or thinks is of a mental nature is only, that the word 'I' in 'I have pains' does not denote a particular body, for we can't substitute for 'I' a description of a body."
There's a notion in me that "men" is one of the cleverest of Statist's "first principles." Also a system that stresses depersonalization is forced to admit "a voice that is heard everywhere; an image that is seen nowhere."
It is better for now anyway — not to go too deep into this notion (although the implication is enough to satisfy my mind); that is, it would be better to let future days take care of the development that is detail.
Maybe the _____ concerning my failure to make poems here is due to this land's kind of propaganda — one must be alert; for the natural here is arranged (set-up) with a different intent (that is, the "exploitation of the will" is less potent); "ignorance is much like the logician's and the geometer's statements that contingencies, accidents are so only because of one's ignorance of the "conditions." If they would say respectively — In logic nothing is accidental, there are only necessary causes. So the subtle kind of "quiet" counsel here is: not to submit to depersonalization which leads to undifferentiated "me." To juxtapose "_________" and "the second coming" is to put stress on the "equilibriums" proposed by the Material Ideal (the State) and Christ!
The most cunning of logic's one "breathing forth" no means of demonstration: that is, it's "awakening" has a stress (indeed, subtle) reminiscent of the "differential windless."
