Reference: Data Series 1R—THE ANATOMY OF THOUGHT

THE ANATOMY OF THOUGHT

SANITY IS THE ABILITY TO RECOGNIZE DIFFERENCES, SIMILAR ITIES AND IDENTITIES. This is also intelligence. 

DIFFERENT = Two or more facts or things that are totally unlike. They are not the same fact or same object. 

SIMILAR = Two or more facts or things that have something in common with one another. 

IDENTICAL = Two or more facts or things that have all their characteristics in common with one another.

SEMANTICS

Just because two identical objects exist in different locations, does not mean that they are different. In human communication, words mean the things they denote. In that sense the words and their meanings are the same. They should mean the same thing to everybody who uses them in the same context. Of course, a word brings about a mental picture of what it means, and it depends on the context.

In geometry, one proves certain relationships in space. That is a way of demonstrating relationships based on certain assumption about space; but that does not define how the mind thinks. Not knowing this, our current education system straitjackets people’s thinking. This leads to trouble because people have been taught carefully to reach irrational conclusions.

PROPER DEFINITIONS

Thoughts are infinitely divisible into classes of thought. 

BASIC LAW = something to which one aligns other junior facts and actions.

FACT = something that can be proven to exist by visible evidence.

OPINION = something which may or may not be based on any facts.

A sloppy mind sees no difference between a FACT and somebody’s opinion. The basic law is so far senior to the fact that one could throw the fact away and be no poorer. When basics are conceived to be merely similar to incidental remarks, the person cannot understand a situation, or USE a subject he studies.

Individuals to whom differences are identities and identities are differences can muddle up an operation to a point where disaster is inevitable. The need for all discipline can be traced back to the ability to think.
