Type Theory I 81f
E.g. a, b are bodies, the sentences " a is quadrangular", "b is red is true or false, in any case sensefull. Furthermore, the sentences "square is a spatial property" and "red is a color" be true." - In contrast, the series of words "a is a spatial property", " quadrangular is red", "color is a spatial property " should be neither true, nor false but meaningless, mere pseudo-propositions. ((s) So do not: "a is a feature".) Such pseudo-propositions can be avoided if a term (property) of n-th level is based only to such of (n-1) th stage. It follows that the assumption that if a certain property is applied to itself , it can be neither true nor false, but always is pointless.
