It is not humanly possible to gather immediately from it what the logic of language is. **Language disguises thought**. So much so, that from the outward form of the clothing it is impossible to infer the form of the thought beneath it, because the outward form of the clothing is not designed to reveal the form of the body, but for entirely diferent purposes. The tacit conventions on which the understanding of everyday language depends are enormously complicated. >~ [[Wittgenstein]] Understanding a [[Conversation|conversation]] needs both a model of the [[Language|language]] and a model of the other parts [[Philosophy/Rationality/Intelligence|intelligence]] which shapes the language. Therefore it implies that conversations are incomplete [[Information|information]] games and are nondeterministic.
