The Paradox of Logic.

John Brit and I were talking. We talked of many things. Here is a conclusion I (we?) came to:

Logic... oh you logic. You Chesire Cat. You are a paradox.

Here's why. Logic leads to developing a "system" of thought. Any philosophy, any belief, any system. I told kate that I think if I went insane, my brand of insanity would be to take everything to its logical extreme. And systems are just BEGGING to be taken to their extremes to see what they mean,

But if you take any system to its logical extreme, logic runs away. Logic, it seems, is a man afraid of commitment. Niche went insane taking his own system to its illogical extreme. Phaedrus. How many others?

This is why Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance changed my life. You must make a system out of integrating systems without using a system, and then not follow that system completely. You can not trust logic. It will not be ruled by you. Your mind will not allow itself to be divided for long.

Anyway I thought that was interesting.
