Dualities of mathematics (and logic):
Can the dualities of mathematics (and logic) lead to errors in reasoning and incorrectness in physics?

The simplest of possible distinctions are dualities, hot/cold, wet/dry, true/false.

It is possible to consider logics with more than 2 states (like trinary – true/false/undecided).

The universe does not need to conform to our distinctions, in fact it seems to me that the more closely I examine it, the more fundamentally uncertain and complex it seems to be; and at the same time (necessarily) it does very closely approximate classical causality at the normal scale of our existence and perceptions (such complexity as we embody could not exist unless that were so).

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) with reasonable security, tools, resources and degrees of freedom, and reasonable examples of the natural environment; and that is going to demand responsibility from all of us - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money
