It seems as though, however the
outward circs. change, once the

43
word is fastened to a particular personal
experience, it now refrains it's meaning; and
that therefore I can now use it with
sense whatever may happen.

     To say that I can't doubt whether
[to say|I see] red is in a sense absurd as
the game I play with the expression
“I see red” doesn't contain a doubt
of this form.
     It seems,— whatever the circumstances
I always know not whether to apply
the word or not. It seems, at first
it was a move in a special game, but
then it becomes independent of this
game.
   (This reminds one of the way the idea
of length seems to become emancipated
from any particular method of meaning it.)
