Hintikka I 104
Substance/Tractatus/Wittgenstein/Hintikka: not because Wittgenstein's objects would be indestructible, they are substance-like - but because they are the meanings of our simplest expressions. - That expressions whose meanings cannot be described but only exhibited. - It is logically incorrect to point to an object "this does not exists". - Not Because it would be indestructible. - Also not unchangeable - different: if they were composed. - Therefore, the objects that make up the substance, are simple objects.
Tetens VII 48
