Note Translated by C. K. Ogden


“In fact what solipsism means, is quite correct, only it cannot be said, but it shows itself.
That the world is my world, shows itself in the fact that the limits of the language (the language which I understand) mean the limits of my world.
5.621 OGD [→GER | →P/M] The world and life are one.
5.63 OGD [→GER | →P/M] I am my world. (The microcosm.)
5.631 OGD [→GER | →P/M] The thinking, presenting subject; there is no such thing.
If I wrote a book «The world as I found it», I should also have therein to report on my body and say which members obey my will and which do not, etc.” source
