M. A. Numminen sings Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico Philosophicus

from Proposition 4
A thought is a proposition with a sense.
The totality of propositions is language.
Man possesses the ability to construct languages capable of expressing every sense, without having any idea how each word has meaning or what its meaning is—just as people speak without knowing how the individual sounds are produced.
A proposition is a picture of reality.
A proposition is a model of reality as we imagine it.
A proposition shows its sense.
A proposition shows how things stand if it is true. And it says that they do so stand.
Philosophy is not one of the natural sciences.
It will signify what cannot be said, by presenting clearly what can be said.
Everything that can be thought at all can be thought clearly. Everything that can be put into words can be put clearly.
What can be shown, cannot be said.
