Anticipation/Wittgenstein: pointless: to explain it by the fact, as you anticipate "something similar" - similarity is only there with two present, distinct things.
Expectation is not dependent on some future things. - It may be that it remains unfulfilled. - It is all about fitting instead of similarity.
Similarity/Portrait/Wittgenstein: there are good portraits, which are not similar - Criterion for a Portrait: Intention - intention: but cannot be expressed in the portrait.
Only with respect to a projection rule things are similar.

Equality/Wittgenstein: if you say something about the equality of lengths, you say something about the method - even equality of numbers can be determined by many different methods.
