A quite meaningless statement can still be meaningfully interpreted.
It is an invitation into a reconciliation with any and all kinds of reality.
No statement can be sealed with the sign “no exit.”
“A is not necessarily B” is easy to establish; “A is necessarily not B” is almost impossible to establish.
Statements on “human nature” directly express how some humans feel towards nature and indirectly express how some humans feel about society.
The statement: “All are equally egoists” The sentiment: “I admit to pettiness and vanity. I’ll be damned if I admit to having any superiors!”
Neither the truth nor falsity of statements depends on the intention of the speaker. Speaking lies, though, can only be distinguished from speaking falsely by motivation.
