1. The problem is present in language. The problem is nowhere else. Problems do not exist outside of language.

2. Why not then learn to speak a new language? One free of those problems?

3. A new language is a new form of life. A new language forces you to live in a new way.

4. Other languages are only found in other places. You must go to where an other form of life exists. Where of what they speak is without nonsense. In that world, where the things that are said to exist here are not, there are no words for them. You must go to where the things are not and not introduce the words that will bring those things. You must take care to keep the troubling words out.

5. Small groups. Non-western people. Jungles. Deserts. Nomadic hunter gatherers maybe. Probably do have some nonsense regardless--ideas of gods and other early language developments toward nonsense; other early language attempts at extending the order and rationalizing it.

6. The canning factory will just dull the mind of the problems, Ludwig. I'm not sure at all how a lobotomy of this sort is therapeutic, Ludwig.

7. "Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent."

8. Does telling someone to stop using a word really work? What has happened to that word? What has happened to that person?

9. Why didn't Ludwig go where they spoke less nonsense?

10. Solitude.

  1. The reader can understand that the understanding is a revocation--the understanding with him as the sole reader is indeed the revocation of the book. He can understand that to write a book and to revoke it is not the same as refraining from writing it, that to write a book that does not demand to be important for anyone is still not the same as letting it be unwritten.
