Wittgenstein and the Kennedys

Wittgenstein and the Kennedys

After I had discovered the 'Siebensterns' of Wittgenstein's 'Wörterbuch' of 1926, I discovered the following 'Kennedy' pattern in the mid entry (4th triad) of each 'Siebenstern':

#1: Indianer, Indien = John
#2: Mittelschule, mitten = Fitzgerald
#3: rüsten, rüstig = Robert
#4: (tot), toll = Frances (toll = indoeuropean 'dhuel')
#5: Akrobat, Akt = Edward
#6: ersetzen = Moore

Since John Fitzgerald and Robert Frances were born before 1926, only Edward Moore was born after, it follows that the names could have been constructed after the birth of these three - that is, that they originally had other names - a conclusion that can be reached if it be concluded also that the Siebensterns have a sufficiently prominent role in politics.

That would or could mean that the Kennedys are secret intelligence agents. They could be at the core of the construction of the socalled 'International Secret Intelligence Services' - which could be about an international mafia, sort of. If so, the theory that John F.Kennedy personally spurted semen on my cortex in july 1957 is more possible: To think that a soon-to-be US president would stand there in such a ridiculous role is perhaps difficult, but if it were about a mere agent from the services it is a much more possible theory.

If so, the construction of the 'family' could have started in the context of the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948, hence the name 'Kennedy' for the 'family clan', and the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi could have been planned at least since the sudden death of Francis Skinner, Wittgenstein's friend, in 1941.

'Gandhi' is an indian name that can mean a 'smell' or 'scent'. It is possible that a reading of Wittgenstein's 'Wörterbuch' can lead to the sensation of a smell of metaphysical peanuts. The cartoon 'Peanuts' was started in 1948, it seems. The idea would probably be false that Wittgenstein wrote his 'Wörterbuch' while eating peanuts and therefore the smell of it has remained in the text like a 'divine revelation in the text' - cp. Rilke's early 'Larenopfer' (1895) where already the first poem contains 'Brause' and 'Dämmerung' (Siebenstern #1). It is much more probable that the word 'Erdnuss/Erdnüsse' derives from the word 'Wörterbuch' by way of a phonological or semantic redundancy in the 'Wörterbuch', and this redundancy is sensed as a smell of peanuts. (Hence it would rather be the reader who has eaten the peanuts). I discovered the same phenomenon as a smell of unwashed bedclothes when reading the first books of my own 'The Endmorgan Quartet' - which likewise can be about a semiotic redundancy in the book for 'end' = 'bed/Bett', 'morgan' = 'unwashed' (norwegian 'u-vasket', not 'u[o]vas-ket'), 'quartet' = 'clothes/Kleider'. Notice for example the two (probably ex nihilo) 'stigma' pieces I found - the one to the left (the 'metallic' one) was on the inner sole of a shoe while the one to the right (the 'wooden' one) was found at the end of the bed - the foot end of it where the naked foot rests at night. The carmelites are divided into shoed and shoeless.

This 'bed-unwashed-clothes' for 'unwashed bedclothes/linen' is found also in Rilke's second book "Traumgekrönt' (1896), also in the introductory poem - see below. (Rilke's third book was 'Advent' - I got a trombosis in the Advent last year). Therefore when peanut farmer Jimmy Carter (cp. the Carter Lane of the address of Routledge & Kegan Paul who published the 'Tractatus') was US president, it could have been about this 'smell of peanuts' in Wittgenstein's 'Wörterbuch', and this 'smell' could be the meaning of the name of the Gandhis in the mythos construction. If the name 'Kennedy' were constructed as a 'secret intelligence project', it could have been on background of the name of 'Gandhi' as well as school inspector 'Kundt' (who in 1926 tried to persuade him to continue as teacher in spite of the mistake with the Ohrfeige) and the address of the school teacher seminary in Kundmanngasse where Wittgenstein took his education in 1919-1920 and where he later (1926-1928) participated in the construction of a house for his sister Gretl Stonsborough. (When I was troubled with silent telephones cp. 'Ohr-feigens', in the years 1986-88, up to the hanging of Satwant Singh on 6 january 1989, it could have been for constructing the mythos that Satwant Singh really were my sister - by the const-ruction of the house 60 years earlier).

The socalled 'Kennedy clan' are famed for the 'curse': Many of them have died under more or less telling circumstances. One of them died (I think I read on the internet) while playing football with skis on his legs, as if it were about a 'norwegian'. The theory exists that they have not died but rather 'pulked' - changed identity to new look and new name and false background history. Such 'pulks' will often be characters of minor importance in their new roles - and if they claim to be respected by the new host country as a 'Kennedy' of White House level, that is to ask for 'having the cake and eat it too', as I think is the expression in english: To have both the advantages of being in a non-burdened role and the advantages of being from a former 'presidential' family. In norwegian that is called 'sekk & pose', and I notice the role of norwegian PM 'Jan Peder Syse' - a name which resembles the spoon 'pekk & sose' (cp also the former Hollywood star 'Gregory Peck').

If the 'Kennedy curse' consists in organized change of look and names (identities) of the Kennedys rather than in their 'curse' deaths, if they should have gone to Norway after their 'deaths', that could explain the dimensionality:

Norway - Vietnam = 180 degrees on the globe
Norway - Iraq = 180 degrees in the cognitive space
Norway - Italy = 180 degrees in the european swastika

The essential question

Could the names of the three Kennedy brothers John, Robert, Ted in correlation with the mid entries of Siebensterns 1-6 have been a coincidence? I mean, could there have been such a family first, before 1926, that is, and then the Siebenstern structure of the 'Wörterbuch' were discovered later - or the structure could even have been constructed/excerpted on basis of the names of the Kennedys - and thereafter much 'biz' was constructed on basis of the matrix for lending weight to it? If the structure in the Wörterbuch were discovered first and thereafter the family was found for it, in the sense that the family and its names existed in advance of the discovery, it would mean that the family grew prominent in politics not the least by being defined (in advance) by a universal principle of the semiotic constitution of the world which also had been the reason for this pattern in Wittgenstein's writing of his 'Wörterbuch' - including the typographical shape that the publisher/printer had given to it. I personally believe that Wittgenstein wrote his 'Wörterbuch' in an attempt to mend the semiotic hole which was left in his logical system of the Tractatus - that is the hole which I probably have mended with my TEQ (by showing the existence of a phonologically based logic in addition to the normal semantically based one, and these two logics meeting in the semiotic sign which constitute the basis for Wittgenstein's struggling with what I call his problem of the 'nomothetes' (this is really the question whether there exists a 'divine revelation' in the text) - and the theoretic possibility of the family pre-existing as a 'coincidence' would have its explanatory framework there, in that need for solving the problems in the construction of the logical system - possibly even to the point of associating JFK with a 'divine' role. However, if the assassinations of the Gandhis are a part of that construction, it is no longer likely to be about a 'coincidence' any longer, as if they just happened to stand there when the bullets passed by - which of course also could have been a 'coincidence'. Would they have been standing there by 'coincidence' because of the similarity of name? How far can this story be 'pulled by the nose'? (Pope Paul VI allegedly got a longer nose in the course of a summer, whatever the reason could have been). It is fully possible that the eventual conclusion will be that it rather be about the name of the Kennedys being derived from the name of the Gandhis.

Of course, if the Kennedys were agents from CIA or something like that, in a national attempt to solve the logical problems that co-occurred with the Fatima revelations that seemed to have triggered Lenin's revolution, they should (by modern standards) not have been allowed to be in government with false names and biographies - even if it were CIA or a similar bureau of secret intelligence who thereby ruled the country. This could have been the trivial explanation to the 'Kennedy assassination' before the end of the four years - which Kennedy then could have constructed as a false assassination for telling what it was about. The name of the alleged assassin was Lee Harvey Oswald - a name which resembles Wilhelm Ostwald who was the first to publish the 'Tractatus' (in his 'Annalen der Natur-Philosophie'), and hence the 'Wittgenstein' role of the official end of Kennedy could have been telling that 'in my end is my beginning' of T.S.Eliot's 'Four quartets' (1944).

Why should USA/CIA have been interested in such a story - of being present (as president) in the White House via an agent? It could have been on the background of Hitler as monkey business on Wittgenstein and Fatima - which again was the direct precursor of the russian revolution that followed only a couple of weeks after the last Fatima revelation - which had told the message from Heaven that 'Russia must turn around'.

More important, though, could have been the interests in controlling the shape given to the new 'logical space' about to develop. It is such a great pity that this seems to have tentatively gone under the control of 'International Secret Intelligence Services' - instead of flourishing in the public space of academic institutions. Power is not the right place for logics - in particular if terror is used for controlling the development of the new logic, leading also to the need for keeping the 'research' secret due to 'bad conscience' after the generally non-permitted status of terror. To implement Wittgenstein in history by way of 'secret-intelligence-controlled' politics in a quasi attempt to solve the theoretical difficulties therefore cannot be right, in particular if terror is used for reaching the goal of control (that was Hitler's stategy). The apparent attempts to portray Wittgenstein as a murderer and pedophile and homo and things like that could look like an attempt of the 'services' to take his place (see below on Rilke's preface). If that is the factual role of the Kennedys, for example on behalf of International Secret Intelligence Services, the story should be told as it is. Presidential power of the White House should not be under the control of the secret intelligence - of course it must be the other way round - but this struggle between constitutional and unconstitutional power is perhaps the story.

Of course, if the 'Kennedy clan' with their 'curse' were constructed by e.g. USA/CIA before the death of Francis Skinner in 1941, it could have been pretexted in an attempt to take the terror-and-monkey-business of Hitler, who also could have couped Lenin's revolution - and if the family did not exist before 1941 but only after, then it will probably not be possible today to find proof of the artificial 'service' construction of the Kennedy family. It was Kennedy who gave the order to send americans to the moon, and if those expeditions were a hoax only, it could have been for telling about a giant historic swindle. I recall Ragna Gröver mentioning Lord Snowdon while wiping-washing the table at which we were sitting while watching the first step on the moon. Could be 'turning the Lord' - as for lifting the role of the wittgensteinian 'nomothetes' from God to Kennedy = the secret intelligence - is the project?

But that is an old program which has tried and failed over and over again throughout history. Could be the real story is the 'Indianer' in the name of John F.Kennedy in Siebensterns #1 - and the bad conscience haunting the immigrated americans that live on the continent today. Then the real program could have been to tell that 'this is Satan determined to fail'.

I am not Satan. I am not involved in this history at all.

If USA/CIA constructed the Kennedys on basis of the structure in the 'Wörterbuch' which Wittgenstein wrote for mending the semiotic hole, and if USA/CIA or the US democrat party later tried to cover up the story and pretend that the Kennedys were first and the structure in the 'Wörterbuch' was constructed-excerpted by CIA later (assuming that the typography of the 42 pages in the 'Wörterbuch' is not a falsification of later times), then the story of the Kennedys constitutes a mighty burden on further progress in semiotics and linguistic theory - since the 'mending of the semiotic hole' looks like a potential falsification made in an attempt to take the more or less god-given role of the Kennedys. If US democrats had interests in the 'islamic state' movement of the alleged jihadists of Syria from 2011 onwards, it could be about such ideas of a god-given role to Kennedy - for example in the sense of International Secret Intelligence Services (a mafia?) ruling the country. The solution to the problem of communication with remote intelligences is then very seriously hampered, and to try and rescue it by 'swindle space travel' cannot solve that problem.

Wittgenstein probably wrote the 'Wörterbuch' to mend the hole in his theory, could be he told himself that the first rejections from publishers were because of a weak point in his theory, and the structure of the 'Siebensterns' is likely to be for such reasons - but he may have been lured by the typographer and that led to his mistake (I have not found the publication date of the Wörterbuch but have guessed that it was around the time of the Ohrfeige story). Then if the Kennedy clan were constructed later under the pretext of 'taking Hitler and the russians', the result would have been the conclusion that Wittgenstein's mistake meant that he realized that he had failed and could not rescue his theory - and therefore let his disappointment out on the unfortunate pupil. This is likely to be the reason for the apparently giant role of the Ohrfeige in the postwar world.

The fact remains that the 'Wörterbuch' of 1926 which I found in the austrian national library looks authentic and the Siebensterns are probably a structure in the artifact itself more than in the list of words. Was it Jan Mukarovsky and/or Jurij Lotman who emphasized the role of the artifact in literary theory - and was that as early as the 1930's? Edward Moore Kennedy was officially born in 1932 - and russian administration could have asked for a favour in terms of a theoretic concept of 'artifact' for signalling american 'farti-act' in terms of the correlate to 'Edward' in Siebenstern #5 = 'Akrobat, Akt' - that would serve as a dating of the Kennedy project if that were a secret intelligence program and not just the name of a successful family.

That should normally mean that the names of the Kennedys were constructed after 1926, and the possible role of 'coincidences' is probably very small.

But are the 'Kennedy-structures' from the typography of the 42 pages in the 'Wörterbuch' - the words selected 3,5 cm from top and bottom of the pages - a real semiotic phenomenon or is it a coincidence? My guess is that Wittgenstein's mistake was because the typographer, consciously or not, had created such a structure which Wittgenstein's analytic mind could not avoid discovering subconsciously when he looked over the finished print, the free copies he got from the publisher, and this 'trap' (which could have looked like a new hole in his attempt to mend the hole) prompted the mistake - due to the words 'Watsche' and 'Donner' in Siebenstern #6. He had given away all his money and his academic career in this attempt to mend the hole, and now the typographer had made a new hole in it. It could be just this 'coincidence' of the typography which led to the construction of the Kennedys - if that US president identity were constructed after 1926 and not a 'coincidental' correlate born in advance. Quasi 'divine authority' tentatively assigned to Kennedy could have its origins there.

The 'Siebensterns' are excerpted from the 'Wörterbuch' by two samples up and one down - that is the role of the typographer. I refer to the thresholded photo 11 from the Danube island - here also annotated:

If this is taken to be about the meeting with the iranian woman in the park in Paris, it is the moment when she enters from my righthand side while I have just started reading on the bench - that is the moment when the meaning starts arriving to the reader. It is interesting to recognize the same pattern as on the the pages of the 'Wörterbuch'. The triadic structure on the page of reading resembles the face of the woman arriving to the left. Cp. my 'Rosens triangel' #33. This clearly is a 'semiotic phenomenon' which could be involved in the story.

My own application-reception history

The story of Wittgenstein and the first rejections that led to Hitler makes it natural to ask if there is such a story of mine. I never submitted a manuscript I had written myself to a norwegian publisher, but I did make a translation of Friedrich Dürrenmatt's "Stranitzky und der Nationalheld" - a radio play from 1953 which I gave to the radio theatre of the norwegian broadcasting (NRK) in Oslo in probably the mid 1980's some time. (I later gave a copy of the translation to the archive of the norwegian theatre high school in Oslo). I recall that I did some amendments to it in probably 1985, but I dont remember when I gave it to the radio theatre in the hope of getting some money for it. It is likely to have been around the mid 1980's. When I went back for the response, the one I talked with said that they could not use it - and with a glance at my body (had some 'services' instructed him on the wording?) he added "og så er det jo et omstendelig stykke, da", which could have meant that the 'piece' was standing nearby and/or was of an elaborate and 'circumstantial' type. That is not really a proper description of the piece but could be he meant to tell me that I was used for other functions in the NRK. Franz Vranitzky (whom I then had not heard about) was chancellor of Austria 1986-1997. He had been minister of finances from 1982 under Fred Sinowatz - a name which could be telling of Tangshan 1976 which took place while Kurt Waldheim was chief of UN.

The national hero is called Baldur von Moeve. (Edouard Balladur entered the french government in 1986). I did not submit to peer review again but in the early summer 1992 I was contacted by (Gordon, I think it was) Hølmebakk in Gyldendal - he wanted me to translate a novel (was it Eszterházy?) from hungarian and I had translated some pages when I was in a cafe and a solidly built hungarian arrived and had difficulties with understanding me, so I had to leave. A few days later a letter arrived from the publisher telling that I should terminate the translation immediately and return the material to them. (The Chernobyl disaster in april 1986 released a lot of 'Becquerels').

Dürrenmatt's 1953 piece is perhaps as close to the perfect radio play as one can come - it being about the 'national hero' (president perhaps) being visited by 'the people', two disableds, after having acquired lepra in the lefthand big toe while stepping into a hut of the people in Abessinien. It is fully possible to see the structure of this radio piece as the background of my own application for a project in poetic science which is part 4 in the PhD dissertation of 1997, included in my collected works vol.3. Tony Blair won a 'landslide victory' while I was writing the dissertation with this application paper, and Gordon Brown later became PM in England. It was shortly after I had sent the application (included in 'A waist of time' part 4) that princess Diana died in a car crash in Paris. The application had probably not reached Oslo by post when this happened - when the princess was stopped abruptly on the way. Was it 'God' (so to speak) who wanted her? Was it his application? (I later saw a front page newspiece wherein queen Elisabeth said that 'Diana was a whore').

One notices also that 'Dürren-matt' means 'dried-out-weak', 'whithered-pale/weak', of relevance also for a possible role of Baruck Obama by the 'meaning' of his name. I have earlier described my submission in 1994 of my book 'Submorphemic signification' to 'Lawrence Erlbaum Associates' = LEA in USA. The book was rejected. 'Lårene söle-ba-om' could also invoke the name of Obama. Did that cause the war in Syria?

If the peanut smells are in the reader rather than in the 'Wörterbuch', it could resemble the structure of the 'Wörterbuch'.

Rilke's preface

For the Kennedy role, it seems that the idea of divine or not divine authority in the 'nomothetes' of Wittgenstein's logical space is of essential importance.

Rilke's three first poetry books were 'Larenopfer', 'Traumgekrönt' and 'Advent'. As mentioned above, if there is a sensation of peanuts ('Erdnüsse') in the 'Wörterbuch', that could be recognized in the concept of 'Larenopfer': 'Laren' (probably related to 'elf', norw. 'alv') seem to be protective gods or rather 'spirits' of the house and the fields (and road intersections, tells Irmscher ) from the time of the romans (could it simply be the same as 'romanic speech-history'? Varro v,74 tells 'ut annales dicunt, vovit Opi' - and see the Costa Concordia before and the 'Laribus, Dianae' thereafter - which sounds like the joke 'så spør jeg deg, Kari Treseng, vil du ha han Ola Opi?' - it may be a joke from the 60's but I cannot remember the source with certainty) and could in principle have been thought to be contained even in Mussolini's fascist program, collecting the 'fascies' of the earth - and then the later propaganda value could be contained in the idea that Mussolini started his career as successful politician before Wittgenstein's 'Wörterbuch' was published. As such, Rilke's 'Larenopfer' could serve as secret propaganda tool for the idea that Kennedy was first and the 'Siebensterns' were second. In addition, this lends support to the idea of a 'divine revelation in the text' by that smell of peanuts - if the smell had come from Wittgenstein eating peanuts while writing the book and not from a phonological redundancy in the text creating an approximation of the word 'Erdnuss/Erdnüsse' to the word 'Wörterbuch'. Cp. also the idea of 'Echt-Musso-lini'. There is no preface poem in 'Larenopfer' (1895) but in the first poem 'Im alten Hause' there are rhyme words 'Dämmer[stunde]' and '[Stadtge]brause' which occur in the first triad of 'Siebenstern #1' - and hence invokes the idea of a link between Rilke and Wittgenstein.

Rilke's second book 'Traumgekrönt' (1896) starts with the following preface poem:


Darfst das Leben mit Würde ertragen,
nur die Kleinlichen macht es klein;
Bettler können dir Bruder sagen,
und du kannst doch ein König sein.

Ob die der Stirne göttliches Schweigen
auch kein rotgoldener Reif unterbrach, -
Kinder werden sich vor dir neigen,
selige Schwärmer staunen dir nach.

Tage weben aus leuchtender Sonne
dir deinen Purpur und Hermelin,
und, in den Händen Wehmut und Wonne,
liegen die Nächte vor dir auf den Knien...

These three stanzas seem possibly to encode 'Bett-Uvasket[unwashed]-Kleider' = 'dirty linen'. Bett-ler in stanza 1 could tell of 'Bett', while 'Purpur und Hermelin' tell of 'Kleider' - cp. the idea of 'Echt-Musso-lini' - the pure-pure hermeline.

It may be that the mid 'dirty' stanza has been assigned major importance for the secret intelligence program - when the four lines of stanza 2 could - by 'bad reading' - be interpreted as

secret 'divine' intelligence
the program of cliffs-off by movement of hand

and therefore the organizers of the intrigue could believe in the propaganda value of pedo and homo. If Wittgenstein is portrayed unjustly and by insinuations as a murderer, pedo and homo, that could be for putting him into the role of being the reference to this stanza.

My own book title is 'The Endmorgan Quartet', and I have noticed a certain scent of 'unwashed linen' in the reading of at least the first four books, although it is probably too vague to be an aspect of the text itself.

Between the Watsche and the Donner in 'Siebenstern' #6 there are the words 'Christus/Christoph', 'widersprechen, Widerstand', 'Wipfel/wir'. There is the opposite of the Wipfel (top of the tree) in Rilke's preface to his third book 'Advent (1897):


Es treibt der Wind im Winterwalde
die Flockenherde wie ein Hirt,
und manche Tanne ahnt, wie balde
sie fromm und lichterheilig wird;
und lauscht hinaus. Den weißen Wegen
streckt sie die Zweige hin - bereit,
und wehrt dem Wind und wächst entgegen
der einen Nacht der Herrlichkeit.

One observes a certain relevance of the five first and five last entries in Siebenstern #2 for the 8 lines of the 'Advent' preface: 1. Geschwulst (by 'ferkesyke'?), 2. Laich, 3. gönnen/Göpel, 4. Grimm/ Grind, liederlich/Lieferant, 5. Ökonom, 6. Klinge/Knoten, 7. Pfeffer, 8. Kot/Kotzen.

To this can be added that the 6 first entries of #3 (in reverse order) can apply to the 6 first lines of 'Königslied' and the 6 last lines of #1 (in reverse order) to the 6 last of the same poem. That could be the 3221 (the PINcode of my bank card in Die Postbank of 2004) which sometimes perhaps could be seen as 1223 - the number of months, weeks, days between the birth of Albert of Sachsony and the publication date of the Eisenhower doctrine.

A lot of games, this looks like, probably of no value for the issue of 'logical space'.

It is 'bad reading' to take the last line to be about the breaking up of the skull and the rotation of the tools inside - or the dropping of the 'glittering' Abfall ('Kot') therein - as a case of 'Herrlichkeit' - the arrival of the son of God etc. If you dont trust the invitations of the Advent in the low-swaying branches of the tree, in the opposite of the Wipfel, then just let it be. There is no 'Kot' in Rilke's poem - but maybe a 'Kotzen' of snow there could be.

There has been a great problem with apparent theft of written material from my workspace apparently abused in ads of Vienna and possibly Austria: Ad-vent[ilation] could have been the purpose?

Wipfel = the top of the tree - while the top of the three Kennedys could be recognized perhaps in the 1/11 = 0,090909... - which could have been the secret of Manhattan 11/9-2001. I notice that in addition to the two jets on Manhattan there was also one cashing into a former diamond mine in Lambertsville and one allegedly on Pentagon - and then one observes the first entry of Siebenstern #3 (after the last entry Kot, Kotze of #2) which is 'Kristall'.That could suggest that the fall of the twin towers of WTC on Manhattan 9/11-2001 served to index the last entry 'Kot, Kotze' of #2. Does that mean the 'Herrlichkeit' of the last line of the preface to 'Advent'?

What should be the purpose with this? It would probably be the logic that if Wittgenstein's 'Wörterbuch' smells of peanuts qua quasi-divine 'Laren', the preface of the second of Rilke's books could be telling of 'Bett-schmutzig-Kleider' = 'dirty linen' - that is, with a 'divine revelation' in the 'textiles' - and then the third of his books could be telling of the arrival of 'the son of God' himself (Siebenstern #6 entry 2), at the end of the Advent (with that Manhattan 11/9-2001?). If JFK sr. is supposed to be identified as 'God', what could it be about? JFK jr? But he is on the bottom of the sea, they say, or maybe his body was fished up (by the Coast Guard) at some later time - I think I read something like that in a newspaper. He did not 'pulk'? But with modern surveillance of city spaces he would have a hard time sneaking around the cameras for not being discovered. But maybe he 'pulked' and has been rebuilt to a totally unrecognizable shape? Ah, but that is unsafe! They come there in the middle of the rebuilding and just swap two beds and that was it. Then who would be the real interesting person? That would be the doctor who makes the rebuilding - only he will really know something. He leaves a bookmark in the body (a 'Feige' in the 'Ohr'?) when he goes home for dinner and it is there the next morning when he comes back for continueing. But that doctor would be the 'typographer' - the one who makes or 'graphs' the type.

However, these speculation naturally need not have any basis in reality - they only follows from the speculative reasoning above and I have no real empirical basis for it. Nor do I have more empirical basis for ideas of 'pulking' Kennedys (being declared officially dead while continuing under new identity) generally than I have presented here in the discussion of the reception history of Wittgenstein's 'Wörterbuch'.

As is seen from the above quotes from Rilke, the 3221 does not function unless the mid stanza of the poem 'Königslied' is interpreted to be about 'dirty' - for the idea of something having landed on the linen (or the infant cortex?), making it dirty or unwashed. But to see the world turning 'homo' and could be even 'pedo' ('Jung Röver'?) for making this sad interpretation function is too bad. The second stanza of Rilke is not 'dirty' at all, I would say, and 'dirty linen' is not really about 'divine revelation in the text' anyhow - so there is not much reason to continue this way of reasoning.

It is now a century since Wittgenstein completed his Tractatus and it could be time to continue the work - the exploration of the 'logical space' (not in an opened brain, though).

Added om 8 august 2019:

It seems that the triad England-ersetzen-Essen of page 8 is an effect of the intervals one fifth from above in the first and third column and one fifth from below in the mid column - out of five fifths in all columns in total. This invokes the ratio 2/5 from 'keys to heaven' and it seems that it is this which selects the words for the potential interpretation of the three Kennedy brothers. But there are another two ratios in the 'keys': 25/19 = 19/25 and 33/46. One divides the column in 25 units and counts 9.5 of these from top and bottom etc. This seems to produce words like 'import' and 'Mittagsmahl' etc. What sort of epithet or other identity could that be on a Kennedy? Do I see a 'Chappaquiddick' (ahnen, Ahnung) on 'Edward Kennedy' (page 1)? One could also read the columns upside down. Since it is the typography which is the cue, there is not much purpose in quoting the words on basis of own measurements - it is better to reproduce the 6 typographical pages scanned by me from the 1926 edition which I read in the national library of Vienna. Here are the six pages from Wittgenstein (1926) in the order of the six groups given here, potentially relevant to the three brothers John Fitzgerald, Robert Frances and Edward Moore Kennedy:
