    duchamp nu descendant: wave function vs eigenstate.

    ...wavefunction as a probability amplitude, and the act of observation as a nonunitary evolution (“collapse”) of the wavefunction into an eigenstate. The interpretation does not state that the particle does not exist until it is observed; it says that, say, the particle’s position or momentum (or whatever other property we’re interested in) does not exist until it is measured. (Viktor T. Toth)

    13. Self
    Both praise and blame cause concern,
    For they bring people hope and fear.

    For, without self, to whom may fortune and disaster occur?

    But who regards himself as the world may accept the world

    Newspaper report of court case, showing graphicallly sequence of events lead to automobile accident, triggered, said Wittgenstein, his picture theory of language. Later, back in Cambridge, economist friend Piero Sraffa delivered one of those characteristically Italian chin brush gestures delivered in face of imprudent fellow driver, asking Wittgenstein what  logical picture of that would be? Disarming riposte steering philosopher away from picture concept to navigating traffic-of-language instead

    Both early and late, traffic in focus i.e. basically: to account for sequence of events. Difference is between sequence and gesture of language. In other words: author steered away from language to paralanguage

    From steps of sequence to degrees of saturation

As in carriage of somebody standing like an argument no longer need be argued for cf. tight-rope walker does not argue for balance cf. human proportions reflected in architecture cf. Lao Tze, reflecting on ‘ritual’, section 38 of Dao De Jing (Tao Te Ching):

    Harmony does not care for harmony, and so is naturally attained.
