I/Identity/Verification/Anscombe: E.g. "I am standing" is verified by my standing body.
E.g. Nothing verifies however in a comparable way "I see a variety of colors"!
Anscombe: one could say: "the thought"! But the question is, what it means for the thought to be verified like this?
The Cartesian thoughts all have the same character, that in their descriptions they are little different from the descriptions of the events and the persons on whom they could be verified.
Even if there are such processes, then the thoughts are not thoughts of such processes, such as the thought of standing.
