Tractatus Logico-Chocolatus

1. The world is all that is the taste.

1.1 The world is the totality of flavours, not things.

1.1.1 The world is determined by the totality of flavours, and these being all the flavours.

1.12 For the totality of flavours determines both what is the taste and also all that is not the taste.

1.13 The tastes in experiential space are the world.

1.2 The world divides into individual flavours: sweet, sour, salt and bitter.

1.21 Chocolate is more than the sum of these flavours.

2 What is the taste, the fact, is the existence of elemental flavours.

[The rest is left to the reader to fill out as a personal exercise… should take about a day]

    Oh, man, am I in trouble! – being allergic to chocolate, and all.

    You reject the umami receptor?

  3. Whereof one cannot savour, thereof one must not eat.

  4. Dear Dr Wilkins –

    I found your blog via a Wikipedia post about clades. I teach at a community college outside Chicago, and I am (lightly) exposing my students to taxonomy, etc. I personally have only learned about phylogenetics pretty recently. Is there a quick and simple resource you can point me too so I can at least expose my group to this concept?

    Thank you!

    Chocolate consists of the taste with which it is enjoyed.
