    Are the irrelevancies something other than that which informs potential action?

    Well said. This is how I take my Heidgenstein. The old masters did deal with genuine life problems, though, I would say. So your critique applies to a certain kind of obsessive digression that happens when folks get lost in dictating an ideal language.

    Of course ! Languaging, like any other form of behavior can operate like a bodily habit (as in circling thoughts ), or merely for attention seeking

    So then there is something else other than that which informs potential action.

    Facts about subjectivity are only subjective in the sense that they're facts about subjectivity. They're still objective in the sense that they're a fact. After all, subjects are just one kind of object: one with consciousness.

    You're thinking of "fact" as something like "true statement." (Otherwise saying "facts about" would make no sense.)

    If we use "fact" in the "state of affairs" sense, there can be subjective facts, in that its an ontological property of the fact that it's subjective.

    I think I understand and agree. It is (roughly) true or false that Gary was thinking about pizza at a particular moment.
