… life is but a sequence of inferences or a train of thought …— Peirce (CP 7.583)
The train that can be expressed is not the express train.
The confusions which occupy us arise when language is like an engine idling, not when it is doing work.— Wittgenstein (PI I.132)
… the whole function of thought is to produce habits of action … what a thing means is simply what habits it involves.
Never mind the meaning of life, live what you mean.
