0.10 I thought it only right
that I, me
Mabel intrude
here and prepare you
for this next section
by showing you how
modern day logicians
disarticulate
embodied
thoughts in the form of
everyday sentences

0.11 If you take the
token sentence
"
Mabel is thinking"
and remove Mabel
you are left then with
the open sentence
"
...... is thinking"

0.12 The "...... is thinking"
bit denotes a one place
predicate according to
our logical
(br)Others

0.13 Hence at its simplest
all one place predicates
require the addition
of a singular term
to
produce a
meaningful
thought

0.14 Singular terms
according to our
logical (br)Others
designate and refer
either to concrete
individual Persons
and Things
or
individual Sets
of particular
abstract Events


0.15 Now take the sentence
"Mabel is thinking about Dr George"
remove Dr and Mabel Morrice
and this time you are left
with the open sentence

"
...... is thinking about ......"

The "...... is thinking about ......"
bit denotes then a two
place predicate
according to our
logical
(br)Others

0.16 In this case the two
place predicate requires
the addition of two separate

singular terms
to produce
a meaningful thought


0.17 Thinking then solely
implies thinkers
and thoughts and
since thoughts of
Others

are simply thoughts of mine
thinking ultimately needs only

me and my thoughts
to make any sense


0.18 To paraphrase good
old (F)Other Descartes

"I think therefore You are not"

0.19 Now let us take the token sentence
"
Mabel is talking about her (m)Other"
remove Mabel and her
(m)Other
and we are left then
with the open sentence
"
...... is talking about ......"

0.20 This two place predicate
"
...... is talking about ......"
implies then the existence
of both a speaking subject
and a subject of speech


0.21 Now take the sentence
"Mabel is talking about

her (m)Other to Dr George"
This time upon removing Mabel
her (m)Other and Dr George
we are left only
with the open sentence
"
...... is talking about ...... to ......"

0.22 This three place predicate
"
...... is talking about ...... to ......"
requires the existence then
of some individual speaking
subject
with some pressing
subject of speech and
some attentive
Other
only too willing
to listen in order
to make any sense

0.23 To paraphrase
(F)Other George

"
You talk therefore We are"

0.24 Now We ought to be
concerning ourselves
with
thoughts logical
and
imaginary
remember
