The Passover (!)

There is this pitfall of taking knowing for meaning.

It is a thought that crossed my mind when a friend said
that the word ”achieving” has no meaning while being in nature,
enjoying landscapes, climbing mountains.
It recalled a well known phrase of Ludwig Wittgenstein:
”What can be said at all can be said clearly,
and what we cannot talk about we must pass over in silence.”
 Meaning is the passover (sic).
