The riddle of the Self

An answer which cannot be expressed the question too cannot be expressed.

The riddle does not exist.

The Analytic, Tractatus 6.5

If the question, ‘what is the meaning of life/world?” does not have an expressible answer, and therefore the question does not exist, what are we left afterwards?

The self who asked it. Herein lies the riddle.
