One of the interesting things about a collaborative weblog is the way it maintains inertia. I might have stopped reading PI at about remark 50 had I not been embarked upon this project; after all, I have by this point in the text developed an exquisite sense of Wittgenstein's obdurate & implacable approach to philosophy. Wittgenstein is the proponent of the philosophical high colonic & so what can be expected in the next three hundred remarks but more cleansing? The answer is, I don't know & this particular project constrains me to find out. By the time this is over I'm going to have the cleanest (philosophical) colon in creation!
