Definition for Logic

Logic Is Not a Philosophy

Definition For Logic

I have seen two very common abuses to the word logic...

1) The education system generally considers logic a branch of philosophy, rather than a branch of mathematics.

2) A large number of "intelligent" people (please see how I define the word "intelligent" elsewhere on my website) will say that "something that is not proven is not true", and many of them will call that "logic".

I have often noticed that those that use #2 are both successful and pushy, railroading others towards their own success. And I'm willing to guess that they use their success as proof that they were right, thus feeling justified in continuing their abuse of the word "logic". I see this extreme closed-mindedness causing all sorts of problems in society. It seriously disrupts and manipulates the creative process behind inventing, and the ponder process behind genuine awareness. It blinds people and it blocks their progress on all levels except incremental. It has absolutely nothing to do with logic. Logic dictates that if something is both not proven and not disproven that it is an unknown.

As to #1, it seems odd to me that this hasn't been fixed, its as though we still have one foot back in the dark ages. Does anyone else wonder the same?

Here is how I define logic...

The rules and constants for mathematics and deduction, in their ultimate/perfect/real form.

Many people consider logic and its various forms and branches, all born from human thought, and therefore imperfect. However, the idea that humans invented logic results in fallacies. And these fallacies show that logic is actually a pre-existing structure that we discover.

The error-prone forms and branches of our representation of logic, actually revolve around a real and perfect logic. And as we walk down the path of discovery, learning more and more about logic, the many forms and branches of our representation of it will both narrow as we find ways to consolidate the branches, and expand as we discover more branches, oscillating back and forth, until it all comes together in one comprehensive correct format at some distant point in our future.

It is that final comprehensive correct format for logic that I now at this time call "logic" (due to the fact it was always in this form anyway).

Our view of what logic is, changes, as we unlock one piece to the puzzle after another along our path of discovery. However, logic itself does not change. It always has and always will exist in exactly the same form.

Many confuse logic with science. Science is the current state of our understanding of nature and our universe. And it likely contains many flaws.

And many confuse logic with the laws of physics. However, the laws of physics only apply to our universe while logic applies everywhere. Also, the laws of physics must reconcile to the rules for logic, NOT the other way around. And, what physicists currently consider the laws of physics, likely contain a number of errors, and are most certainly incomplete.

In contrast, logic, as I define it, is perfect and unchanging. It is also inevitably the same logic that was there at the beginning of existence, and will be there forever into the future.

Logic does not pass down from authority. Nobody decides what it is going to be. It just is. All we can do is attempt to discover and understand it.

I developed a theory for existence that gets its start from the actual structure of logic, since this is the only mechanism that could possibly give existence a beginning. Here is my Theory for Virtual Causality.
