Wittgenstein’s Beetle

. . . Suppose everyone had a box with something in it: we call it a ‘beetle’. No one can look into anyone else’s box, and everyone says he knows what a beetle is by looking at his beetle. Here it would be quite possible for everyone to have something different in his box. One might even imagine such a thing constantly changing. But suppose the word ‘beetle’ had a use in these people’s language? If so, it would not be used as the name of a thing. The thing in the box has no place in the language-game at all; not even as a something: for the box might even be empty. No one can ‘divide through’ by the thing in the box; it cancels out, whatever it is. (Philosophical Investigations, para. 293)

Rockmuusikot alkavat olla niin päteviä, että jopa Frank Zappan musiikille löytyy paljon soittajia – myös Suomesta. Mutta hänen kuoltuaan ei ole ilmaantunut ketään, joka taitaisi sekä klassisen musiikin kaanonin että populaarimusiikin lajit ja kykenisi leikittelemään niillä kaikilla yhtä omaperäisesti.
