Review from Variety  (March 1, 2020):

“The trigger warning big enough to cover the plot details, let alone
the themes here, has not yet been invented (such a trigger would
have to be more in the order of the firing pin on a mortar, or maybe
the detonation code to a suitcase nuke), so proceed with caution. . . .”

Freeman Dyson on his staircase at Trinity College
(University of Cambridge) and on Ludwig Wittgenstein:

“I held him in the highest respect and was delighted
to find him living in a room above mine on the same
staircase. I frequently met him walking up or down
the stairs, but I was too shy to start a conversation.”

Frank Close on Ron Shaw:

“Shaw arrived there in 1949 and moved into room K9,
overlooking Jesus Lane. There is nothing particularly
special about this room other than the coincidence that
its previous occupant was Freeman Dyson.”

Oblivion

(A sequel to Simplex Sigillum Veri and
Rabbit Hole Meets Memory Hole)

” Wittgenstein does not, however, relegate all that is not inside the bounds
of sense to oblivion. He makes a distinction between saying  and showing
which is made to do additional crucial work. ‘What can be shown cannot
be said,’ that is, what cannot be formulated in sayable (sensical)
propositions can only be shown. This applies, for example, to the logical
form of the world, the pictorial form, etc., which show themselves in the
form of (contingent) propositions, in the symbolism, and in logical
propositions. Even the unsayable (metaphysical, ethical, aesthetic)
propositions of philosophy belong in this group — which Wittgenstein
finally describes as ‘things that cannot be put into words. They make
themselves manifest. They are what is mystical’ ” (Tractatus  6.522).

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy , “Ludwig Wittgenstein

From Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus  by Ludwig Wittgenstein.

(First published in Annalen der Naturphilosophie ,1921.
English edition first published 1922 by Kegan Paul, Trench and Trübner. This translation first published 1961 by Routledge & Kegan Paul. Revised edition 1974.)

The solutions of the problems of logic must be simple, since they set the standard of simplicity.

Men have always had a presentiment that there must be a realm in which the answers to questions are symmetrically combined — a priori — to form a self-contained system.

A realm subject to the law: Simplex sigillum veri.

Somehow, the old Harvard seal, with its motto “Christo et Ecclesiae ,”
was deleted from a bookplate in an archived Harvard copy of Whitehead’s
The Axioms of Projective Geometry  (Cambridge U. Press, 1906).

In accordance with Wittgenstein’s remarks above, here is a new
bookplate seal for Whitehead, based on a simplex
