5.5262 The truth or falsehood of every proposition changes something in the general structure of the world. And the range that the totality of elementary propositions would allow its structure is exactly the same as that which completely general propositions delimit.

(If an elementary proposition is true, then in any case there is thereby one more true elementary proposition.)

Is this perhaps because right now no elementary proposition is true? I don’t get it. Otherwise this seems to be saying that you don’t need elementary propositions: completely general ones are just as good.
