Leo,    (01)

For any subject you can mention, there are many volumes written
about it.  That is one reason why I say that there is no such thing
as a primitive where analysis stops:  it is always possible to do
a deeper analysis.    (02)

But don't give up.  As Calvin Coolidge said,    (04)

For example, the difference between 'look' and 'see' is intention.
That's something simple we can start with.    (06)

This gets into speech acts, which are all intentional.  In fact,
every "action" is performed by some human or animal for some purpose.
People do represent these things.  Don't give up.    (07)
