## UNLOCKING LOGIC

LOGIC means the subject of reasoning. One needs the ability to observe and think. But logic has not been a supported subject, and man is mostly unable to think.

The function of logic is to reach right conclusions and take correct actions. Geometry, or mathematics, are utterly inadequate to address the complexity of human problems. Computers can’t think because the rules of live logic aren’t fully known to man and computer builders. One false datum fed into a computer gives one a completely wrong answer. Computers, at best, are only crutches to the mind.

The following principle provides a breakthrough in the subject of logic.

BY ESTABLISHING THE WAYS IN WHICH THINGS BECOME ILLOGICAL, ONE CAN THEN ESTABLISH WHAT IS LOGIC.

## ILLOGIC

There are 5 primary ways for a relay of information or a situation to become illogical.

1. Omit a fact.
2. Change sequence of events.
3. Drop out time.
5. Alter importance.

There are hundreds of ways these 5 mishandling of data can then give one a completely false picture.

REASON DEPENDS ON DATA.

WHEN DATA IS FAULTY (as above) THE ANSWER WILL BE WRONG AND LOOKED UPON AS UNREASONABLE.

## USING LOGIC

To achieve a logical answer one must have logical data. Therefore, logic must have several conditions:

1. All relevant facts must be known.
2. Events must be in actual sequence.
3. Time must be properly noted.
4. The data must be factual, which is to say true or valid.
5. Relative importances amongst the data must be recognized by comparing the facts with what one is seeking to accomplish or solve.

It is a wise man who, confronted with conflicting data, realizes that he knows at least one thing—that he doesn’t know.

Grasping that, he can then take action to find out.
