According to early Wittgenstein, do we need language or thought for the mystical to "show itself"?
He does say the mystical shows itself. 6.522:
There is indeed the inexpressible. This shows itself; it is the mystical
But does it show itself "sub specie aeterni"? 6.45:
The contemplation of the world sub specie aeterni is its contemplation as a limited whole. The feeling of the world as a limited whole is the mystical feeling.
I'm not sure, because this may be saying that the world "sub specie aeterni" is "a limited whole" because its contemplation is, or, because the world is.
There is the suggestion that it's not how the world shows itself that's limited, but that the world shows itself. 6,44:
Not how the world is, is the mystical, but that it is.
But if his "mystical feeling" is never of the whole world but a limited whole: then we can't -- I think -- say that, that it shows itself is limited. In which case the mystical etc. is outside time and thought, right?
