Now listening: The Notwist, "The Devil,You + Me"
'Specially: Track 9, 'Boneless'
I study religion, because there is a thing that makes a person say (some things; some people), "we/i/one are/am/is made for more than this". And it's either the "more" or the "made" upon which hinges something interesting (which is not the same thing as its being communicable; here is a potential problem for my study. Shh. Moving on.). Ends or origins. What could be meant when someone means these? Means them in the midst of some "this" that is mere, somehow unsatisfactory and obvious?
(There's lots of other ways to interrogate that sentence. Wittgenstein would point you towards the backslashes, for example. I suppose you could interrogate my particular interrogation and find the gaps in which I stand. Loll. Lollygag.)
I think i'm safe asking it this way. If I asked what is more, what its architecture and economics, or if i asked what is made, (what the sinew, what the law), then i can't imagine taking it seriously. But I ask what is meant by meaning these, and I think there's techniques available to me for that sort of research.
If you've ever read some Goethe, it will not surprise you to know that these thoughts? Children of a bitch toothache.
