Wittgenstein defines World as:
TLP: World is the totality of facts, not of things.
Clearly, Wittgenstein is referring to the mental "representation" of the World, not the physical World itself.
We use the word 'sense' in the following way:
Human: Does this make sense to you...?
This usage captures the true meaning of 'sense': a proposition may be well formed (decipherable according to social/language rules), but are you able to "think" what I am thinking?
TLP: A thought is a proposition with sense.
Now this is where I am lost:
TLP: Sense of the World must lie outside the World.
Can the World itself have a sense- Is Wittgenstein still talking about same "sense"?
Even if I agree, how can one just stand away and declare so? Am I not required to "use" some prior sense to be able to make that statement in the first place? Let me be more clear: if sense belongs, so to speak, to a singular faculty of mind -let's call it, for lack of a better term, understanding. Now there seems to be something "fundamentally" wrong in being able to make a statement about sense: For if there isn't infinite hierarchy of such senses, one cannot safely "use" sense to make a statement about sense. More generally, one cannot explain everything, for if one does, the theory itself runs at the danger of being unable to explain itself.
How are we supposed to interpret the "Sense of the World" then (according to TLP / view points against it)? Does/can it exist? If yes, is it "sensible" to us?
