Yes, but only as an asymmetric logical import deriving from a naive concept of potato. We all know that yams do not possess any independent reality in a noumenal sense. The current paradigm suggests that the concept of yam derives from mere appearance manifested to each individual observer. Only a cosmology that is heavily dependent on a phenomena-laden architectronic can sustain a linguistic peculiarity such as yam.

Well, I think that wandeljw has pretty well given the definitive answer. It would be remiss of me, however, not to point out that Popeye the Sailorman also invoked the Cartesian ethic when he said, "I am what eye yam and thass all eye yam." Now whther or not Wittgenstein was a direct (or even marginal) influence on this line of reasoning is hardly germane to the over-all discussion.

No....the being PERCEIVING your stink is.

We all know we don't stink to our own olfactorium.

The stink itself, as well as being both a relative term and largely a cultural artefact, may be illusory as well.

That's not you, Setanta. It's just that they're decomposing composers.
