The Logic of Life is One Valued

May 14, 2011 1 comment

Our traditional, Aristotelean logic is 2 valued. There is “yes” and there is “no”. There is “to be” and “not to be”.

Animals or the deeper layers of our minds do not have that division: there is only “Yes” and “to be” – like “I don’t want to eat” is to the deeper layer “Eat, eat, eat” or “I want to get Sharon out of my head” is “Sharon, Sharon, Sharon“.

The light of reason is just a reflection

I feel cut off, as if there is a barrier in my throat when I am “in the head only”.

On the other hand: communication with other human beings is often over/ in this reflection. We can share a conclusion we arrived at by reasoning. Science works that way. We wish very much that politics works that way.

Yet: how much more rewarding in itself is the direct light of feeling! When we communicate with our pets there is no “yes” and no “no” – just pure being there.

And sometimes that even works with our friends.
