    Like anybody any given moment located somewhere, somebody believe 'a thought' located some compartment of mind. Kant Verstand Erkenntnis Estetisches Gefühl, compartments organizing mental space. Little did he know who would move in after gone. Hegel, new lodger wanted spacious loft knocked out walls installed panorama windows even roof lifted off for unlimited view. Had not Kant been too optimistic in believing his measures of organizing mental space would withstand abuse by being critique of reason, but no nothing stops an outlandish mind.

    Kant mistake: think about thinking to which writing readily but deceptively lends itself. A critique has to let evidence through in order to afford non-circular information.

    No compartments of mirror by which reflection could be organized. Has framing edges still undefined as to range of reflection by tilting.

    The Tractatus connect inseparably language and articulation or is nonsense and is.

    Tractatus presume existence of atomic one-property logical picture. Realize this a problem, eventually gave it up. Prematurely in a sense. Error was not 'picture concept' but that pictures can be analyzed as aggregates of atomic pictures.

    Parts of pictures are no 'elements' like particular piece of fruit in still life is an element of an arrangement, but part of picture. Mirror reflection not made of elements, no smallest mirror, to reflect smallest visual fact. Duchamp shop window declaration dated 1913 published in A l'Infinitif:

    The question of shop windows. To undergo the interrogation by shop windows. The necessity of the shop window. The shop window proof of existence of the world outside.

    Suggested is a picture situation familiar to everybody underlying each and every act of language.

    Tractatus 5.511 Wittgenstein ask how all-embracing logic with all its special catches and manipulations could mirror the world. His answer: all logical details connect into infinitely fine network (Ogden translation from German) thus remain invisible no matter what enlargement operation could be applied to make visible. If language mirrors like mirror in some more definite sense then this claim would have to take into account fact mirrors have no parts even if they have for some reason (smashed and ‘recomposed’).

    Picture idea, foundation of Tractatus language, mistaken yet something achieved, viz a non-optical account of 'picture' beyond any example of the same.
