    "... he'd just be sitting there smiling at whoever came into the room like he knew a secret..."

    "... some claim he spoke to them... and all reported he said the same thing, which was; well I beat all of you, didn't I..."

    "... Bundy's expression, as told by the guard, is said to be of a knowing smile, as if he knew something important about the afterlife that they didn't..."

    Once it is understood that much of the philosophy language game isn't to be thought of as something that is qualified by being 'right or wrong', but rather by and through the use of it's application, the next question becomes; use for what?

    Now it gets a little more interesting. The use is most often metapsychologistic, if you will. Meaning, since such games cannot be understood as right or wrong, they have to be motivated by something else other than pure inquiry. What are the metamotivations?

    I'm afraid they are rather simple and human. Posters trying to impress, gain admiration and reverence, approval, acceptance, recognition... and when in hostile contexts, provoke, insult, cause feelings of envy and inferiority, embarrass, so on and so forth.

    And while all this is happening, posters aren't aware of what they're doing since they aren't aware that there can only be in the rarest circumstances, motivations other than this. One doesn't choose this. It's simply a natural consequence of the rules governing the uses of philosophical language games. In other words, one cannot possibly be concerned with 'finding and expressing the truth' where such an endeavor is impossible in the first place by virtue of the structures of the language use.
