Context

“The totality of true thoughts is a picture of the world.
3.02 OGD [→GER | →P/M] The thought contains the possibility of the state of affairs which it thinks. What is thinkable is also possible.
3.03 OGD [→GER | →P/M] We cannot think anything unlogical, for otherwise we should have to think unlogically.
3.031 OGD [→GER | →P/M] It used to be said that God could create everything, except what was contrary to the laws of logic. The truth is, we could not say of an «unlogical» world how it would look.” source
