From forest to tree, from beech to oak, from branch to leaf, we have things it would appear for every part and aspect of the world. 32 In proposing that the world is held as not-thing, these distinctions are to be seen not as the outcome of distinctions in the world but as the outcome of language. It is not simply that we could have named these things differently, or have made different distinctions, but that the possibility of dividing the world into things at all is itself the outcome of a process of which language is a part.
The hierarchy of languages apparently therefore enables self-referential sentences but avoids paradox. More careful inspection however shows the manoeuvre to be engaged in a sleight of hand for the sentence as constructed only appears to be selfreferential. It is a true sentence of the meta-language that makes an assertion of a sentence in L, but these are two different sentences – although they have superficially the same form. What makes them different is that the meaning of the predicate ‘is not true’ is different in each case.
