Proposition of the Sphere of Atoms by CamiloMM Proposition of the Sphere of Atoms by CamiloMM
The text is from the Pears/McGuinness translation of Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein:
  1. The world is all that is the case.
  2. What is the case—a fact—is the existence of states of affairs.
  3. A logical picture of facts is a thought.
  4. A thought is a proposition with sense.
  5. A proposition is a truth-function of elementary propositions.
    (An elementary proposition is a truth function of itself.)
  6. The general form of a truth-function is [p, ξ, N(ξ)].
    This is the general form of a proposition.
  7. What we cannot speak about we must pass over in silence.
The structure of the book is somewhat like a tree with branches - I've used the seven first-level branches' text. There are several sub-items to these items, which explain them, but I am mostly resuming the book by giving only these.

Read a side-by-side translation here: [link]

Note that I've omitted a sentence, consider it artistic license.

The font used is Linux Libertine, a joy to play with. Open source.

The image used is a public domain NASA image. It may not look like so, but I spent some time tweaking it.

Use this as you wish, as long as you credit me by linking to the original deviation page, to my profile, or to my page (CC-BY).

I am a novice in this and I'm really not confident so please tell me what you think! :)

Time spent: Almost a week.
Tools used: Photoshop (PSD in the download).

I think this is epic, maybe a little confusing to read, but still epic. Well done^.^

Hey, thank you VERY much for the comment and the fav!

Indeed it is not as clear as initially I thought it may came out to be. Thanks for saying it's epic, it's nice to hear you think that. :)
