One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

Tractatus Illogicus

A beautiful, ambitious project to frame a system with rules and definitions, except we are too soon talking about what we don't know, and putting clear delineations on the messy and overlapping. Were the world so firmly static it would starve of inertia.

Without tremendous irrational forces there is no motion.

Without admission that these forces rule, there is neither self-awareness nor honesty.

This is why we invent gods: the richer the soul, the more gods. (Clean and neat makes such a mess.)

Our motivations aren't rational. Adam Smith's treatise about rational actors working towards good aims by means of reason refutes itself, as reason only appears ex post facto to codify a choice made long before reason was considered. Reason is added afterwards as an explanation claiming law and necessity, as if abundant unconsidered alternatives didn't exist. By means of omission, reason decides only one choice was possible, namely the one selected irrationally before having to create a reason.

Reason is our psychological shield, a fiction we expect to have taken seriously.
