wittgensteinsladder:

“Anyone who understands me eventually recognizes [my propositions] as nonsensical, when he has used them – as steps – to climb up beyond them. (He must, so to speak, throw away the ladder after he has climbed up it.) He must transcend these propositions, and then he will see the world aright.”

— Wittgenstein, Ludwig. Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, Proposition 6.54
