What is logic

What is logic

[ 4/1/21 ]

What do you mean by Logic?

Do you mean the simplest of all possible logics – Binary – with only two truth values – True/False?

Or do you mean the infinite set of all possible logics with all possible truth values. The next simplest after binary is trinary – and the simplest of the trinary logics has the three Truth values of: True, False, Undecided.

Once someone starts exploring probabilistic logics, it starts getting interesting.

And when one starts exploring computation and search, and one can prove that for a fully loaded processor, the most efficient possible search algorithm is the fully random search, then one can start to appreciate how the seemingly random nature of some sets of beliefs and understandings can actually be an evolved and efficient response to the problem of searching infinite spaces of logics and possibilities for survivable paths. One can also start to disappear down the hole of how one approximates randomness with all the biases necessarily present in highly evolved systems….
