The Imagination: Making Illogical Arguments Logical

“Nature is the source of all true knowledge. She has her own logic, her own laws, she has no effect without cause nor invention without necessity. ” – Leonardo da Vinci

Because there can be many definitions for the same word, and many words with the same meaning, effective communication requires thought and logic. Thus, it is essential to “think before you speak” and “choose your words wisely.” The compulsion to speak or be heard comes from feeling an emotion and urgency to understand or be understood. When a message lacks sentiment it loses its meaning; without a sense of urgency, it loses importance.

Logical arguments have a formula:

Point A and Point B are the same if, and only if, factor C has the same impact on A as it does B, and the relationship between A and B always remain the same:

IF A = B,

THEN A + C = B + C

This equation appears logical, however, in the application, variations of C may exist that are insignificantly different within the variables, but become significant when introducing another variable (D):

IF A = B,

THEN A + C = B + C,

BUT A + C + D, does NOT always = B + C +D

There are ALWAYS exceptions.

It could be that,

A + C + D = B + C + D, Sometimes.

Any argument can sound logical when an exception is left out or undiscovered.

The exception can be circumstantial:

IF D changes over time (D(t)) and influences C with time,

THEN, A + C + D(t1) does NOT = B + C + D(t2)

WHEN d(t1) does NOT = d(t2)

BUT…

IF D(t1) = D(t2),

THEN A + C + D = B + C + D

The basis of argument stems from variations and exceptions that are circumstantial, such as events that change over time (t), where a point in time influences distance or contrariwise.

Variations can also be introduced to an argument when there are different perceptions of the same event that occurred at a particular time (T), where T is constant, and distance is variable (d):

IF d changes over time (d(T)) and influences C,

THEN A + C + d does NOT = B + C + d,

WHEN d1(T) does NOT= d2(T)

However,

IF d1(T)= d2(T),

THEN A + C + d = B + C + d

Different Point of Views

Different points-of-views create arguments. Take, for example, arguments that are created by different point perceptions or time dilation. With a different point perception, there are two observers, observing the same event from various distances; which gives rise to a different point-of-view and perception of the said event.

A difference in perception is why humans fight.

A pair of humans equal in size can’t fit in a volumetric space corresponding to one of the humans at the same point in time.

They would have to displace one another which would take time. Two humans can be at the same place at the same time but will take up the volumetric space of two humans.

Thus, while we may share the same encounter, it is experienced differently.

Time dilation, in the theory of relativity, is the difference between the elapsed time measured by two observers, either due to a difference in velocity, relative to one another, or a variation in position within a gravitational field. Take for example two people in motion observing the same event X, one is driving north at 65 mph, and the other is driving south at 40 mph. The observers may cross paths within the same instance to see event X, but due to the speed and direction in which they are moving, they gain a different perspective.

Either way, the experience and perception of reality can differ for those observing the same thing, individually.

Humans live in a multi-dimensional space where time and distance are not relevant unless there is a difference between multiple points within the continuum. If there is no change over time, there is no difference between the beginning or the end. Life would be constant and idle; there would only be matter, no anti-matter. What is, would be what it is, and could NOT be changed or argued.

Arguing What Is, Is

Because life is in constant motion, not idle, experienced together, yet individually, one can dispute what is, is.

U.S President Bill Clinton once argued what the definition of what ‘is’ was to a grand jury during his impeachment.  In his defense, he explained why it wasn’t a lie when he stated, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky.”

“It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. If the—if he—if ‘is’ means is and never has been, that is not—that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement. … Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true.”

U.S President Bill Clinton

There are many definitions for similar words that have slightly different meanings; and many words with similar descriptions, that have slight inflections. Anyone with a cunning tongue can make an irrational argument appear logical. President Clinton attempted to argue his pretense as truth by articulating the tense used in his answer against the tense of the question. Somewhere between the past and the present the truth lies, but it wasn’t in Clinton’s argument about what ‘is’ is.

As far as presidents go, Clinton got caught lying with his pants down. He wasn’t the first president nor the last president to act unpresidential in the Oval Office and lie about the details. His appeal to the grand jury about what the definition of what ‘is’ is, did not fare well during the his impeachment trial because he uttered it irrationally. Only those that led the impeachment know why the president was impeached. He probably knew something that could change what some other ‘is’ was. Such as military intelligence wanting to keep unethical human experimentation under cloak-and-dagger, and President Clinton going public with the information.

What “Is” Could Have Been

President Clinton appointed an Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments (ACHRE) to investigate unethical experiments funded by the government before and after the Cold War. With the Cold War over, there was no reason for the research to be shrouded in secrecy, unless it was unethical. The committee consisted of private citizens and experts in bioethics, radiation oncology and biology, nuclear medicine, epidemiology and biostatistics, the public health of science and medicine, and law. The committee found far more than unethical lethal radiation experimentation on humans, which included children. President Clinton presented the findings in an apology on national television in a public address.

The adoption of regulations governing the conduct of human research in 1974 was supposed to be a watershed event in American history for the federal protection of human research subjects. However, to keep within the statute of limitations of secrecy and to avoid internal investigations, the NASI veil covertly adopted the experiments and changed the project code names.

The infamous affair between President Clinton and White House intern Monica Lewinsky began the month following the public address on government-led human experimentation. Clinton was known for having certain proclivities as a sexual harasser. And Monica was his Achilles’ heel. During the affair, a co-worker secretly recorded Monica as a spy for the FBI. The president’s affair created a reason for impeachment, and a scandalous distraction from the truth about the government led human experimentation.

Propagating stories of scandals and creating impeachment hype took precedence over the airwaves. All media sources were used to keep America believing they were free; no matter how grand the stories had to be to embed the truth within the veil of falsehoods. The American history of human experimentation was buried deep within the stain of shame spewed on Monica’s famous blue dress; which was stored as evidence and taken out of the closet when proof of sexual misconduct was necessary.

Distorting the Truth to Create a Virtual Reality

It is easy to conceal a truth if it appears illogical. Human experimentation by a government that is for the people, and by the people, is not logical if the governed body is truly democratic and free. Even after the AMEND, citizens refused to believe their freedom was nothing more than an American Dream.

Americans had an escalated commitment to the idea of freedom.

If one believes something long enough, it can manifest as reality; but not necessarily as the truth. A belief that creates a distorted version of life is a virtual reality.

Humans govern logistically.

Americans were strategically guided to choose their choices by those governing while feeling as though it was their own decision.

Americans lived in a matrix of virtual reality.

It is easy to persuade someone to do what you want by making them believe that it is their idea.

Dr. Sus used reverse persuasion with her husband when she wanted to make changes without arguing.

Steps to Planting an Idea to Persuade Change

Step 1. Plant the seed. Passively imply that something is better than the alternative.

Mrs. Sus to Mr. Sus: “I read an article about how LED light bulbs are more energy efficient and cost-effective than regular light bulbs.

Step 2. Sow the seed. Passively point out that the alternative is not working.

Mrs. Sus to Mr. Sus: “Hey, those incandescentlight bulbs keep burning out, could you grab some new light bulbs on your way home?”

Step 3. Harvest the crop. Allow the person you are trying to convince to come up with the persuaded conclusion.

Mr. Sus to Mrs. Sus: “I found these LED light bulbs at the store, they are supposed to last longer and are cheaper than the bulbs we were using.”

It is okay not to stake a claim for all the bright ideas that light up your bulb!

Logic makes symbols into functional arguments that otherwise would be statements with numbers or letters. Like the genetic code of life which transcribes molecules that are something into proteins that do something.

All systems big and small mimic each other…systematically.

Human Point-Of-View Limits Human Perception

As part of existence, we are all made out of the same fundamental elements found in the air and the ground below. Elements represent energy disbursement, while elemental interactions represent transformation. Energy is released when bonds between atoms are broken and stored when they form.

Humans have to navigate space throughout time without colliding with other objects within the continuum. Life disturbs existence, just by living. Living organisms displace the air it breaths, the ground it treads, and the water it swims. Life moves life and non-life that is molecular.

Life navigates space with sense, which becomes a limit to what parts of existence are observable in a sensible manner.

Humans are limited to the human perspective. Humans can hear between 15 hertz (Hz) and 20,000 Hz, with the human voice falling between 100 Hz to 10,000 Hz. Some animals can hear much higher frequencies (up to 100,000 Hz) like bats, while some animals can listen to much lower rates (>15 Hz) like Whales. The visual spectrum of light seen by humans is between 400 nanometers (nm) (violet-light) to 700 nm (red-light). Some animals have infrared sensing and can discern between 700 nm to 1,000,000 nm, like snakes.

The electromagnetic spectrum of radiation is much broader than what is perceivable by human sensory systems.

Humans are limited to the human perspective. Humans have the point of view of humans. Birds are limited to the bird’s eye view, and fish to the fisheye view. The World looks different to many different things.

There may be forms of life existence that humans may never observe if it exists out of the realm of human perception.

We Fear That Which We Cannot Perceive

Waves of energy that fall out of the human range of perception do not make logical sense to humans; which often turns into discomfort or fear. We fear that which we cannot perceive.

The human brain treats all external information that falls outside of the frequency range of human sensory perception as negative data.

Because the human brain sorts information logically, it can be conditioned to perceive what is rational, and what is not logical or irrational. Such as the illogical argument that one nation is free because all others are not.

Humans are conditioned to fear what they don’t understand, or what they fail to see as logical. That is how the D.E.V.I.L of the NASI veil created a matrix of virtual realities.

Events that occur outside of the average mean are outliers and treated as negative information by the general mass that considers popular belief to be explicit, and all other information to be contrary.

If a body conforms to an idea, and a small part of that organization experiences a variation of that popular belief, which does not meet conformity, it creates a divide between those that are right (the mass majority) and those that are wrong (the minority).

Science is a process of deduction because we know a lot more about what something is not, rather than what that something is. There is a reason for this limitation. We are programmed to be limited in our knowledge so we can grow, and come to understand.

Computers Are Designed Using Logic

A computer does not come to understand but can be designed to learn.

There is a fine line that separates learning from understanding. One can learn to understand the context of what is already known, without understanding how to apply the knowledge. But one can also come to realize ideologies of life without being given the context of what was previously known. The latter separates A.I. from natural intelligence.

Dr. Sus would say her intelligence was both artificially and naturally derived; educated with information that was already known and concluded from life experience. A.I. computes information that it receives, so it can’t think outside of its own system’s limitation to create new logical arguments. nor can A.I. identify the difference (unless it can pass a Turing Test.*)

*A Turing Test evaluates the ability of A.I. to exhibit human-like behavior.

Imagination can make what may seem like an illogical argument into a logical one.

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

Albert Einstein

Humans have evolved to survive through their ability to manipulate matter based on a logical understanding of the environment, and imagination.

The codes used to program computers are similar to the genetic code of life. Genetic machinery distinguishes molecules that are something (like amino acids), from macromolecules that do something (like proteins); whereas a computer operating system distinguishes between symbols or numbers that mean things and symbols and numbers that do things.

The group of scientists, physicists, and engineers that created the code that gave life to Apollyon, understood their inherent logic. Humans can create and destroy with the limitation of the energy held within the continuum.

Just as humans can access the code of a computer, they can reach the information in their genetic code, by understanding who they are and where they originated.

Because we (life that lives) is made up of the same entities as the environment, we have to be able to navigate space and time in an energetically favorable manner.

GNET is a Virtual Representation of Spacetime.

Within the global web, data flows in multiple directions; information can be uploaded and downloaded. If one can send out data, one can receive data.

In the virtual continuum or GNET, end users (consumers of virtual information) have to pay gatekeepers (producers, regulators, and holders of virtual information) to access information held within the matrix. End users pay gatekeepers to access and store data and storage access. The gatekeepers do not have to pay to access end users, nor do they pay end users to save data within an end user’s storage space.

For gatekeepers, the information highway is a freeway. For end users, it is a toll-road.

Information travels by radio and microwave frequencies, globally transmitted and locally received by televisions, radios and smart devices, as well as household utilities, such as thermostats, refrigerators, lights, and even water pumps, which are all woven into the same electromagnetic web. Information can travel through anything within the electric grid.

End users pay to open the gate of information the gatekeepers want them to access. While the gatekeepers can obtain consumer information from consumers, such as when home owners are home, whom they talk to, how often they speak, what consumers talk about, what and when consumers eat, when consumers are hot or cold, or when they are awake or asleep.

“They see you when you’re sleeping, they know when you’re awake, they know if you been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake.”

One should always think critically and logically about information received from an artificial source.

Moreover, one should always think critically and rationally about the information that can be accessed by another source.

If something is secret, such as private parts, keep it where it belongs, in the physical realm of your pants.

Big brother is always watching, but so is big brothers little brother and big brothers bigger brother. They may not be actively observing, but they are collecting the watchful data that might mean something one day when it counts the most.

Exhausting All Possibilities

One should understand all ideologies that they conform to, just as they should discern those they don’t.

All possibilities in the process of reasoning have to be exhausted logically, to come to a genuine conviction in life.

Considering that possibilities to a phenomenon could be anything that is either rarely or never observed, documented nor manifested as thought, there are infinite possibilities within the realm of uncertainty.

One can be 95% confident about an observation, but if the observation is intentional, 95% confidence is an overconfident statistical representation. Confidence is a way for scientists to give value to their logical reasoning behind an explanation for a biological phenomenon.

If one is logistically cunning, one can make any argument appear right.

The confidence of information being sound can only stand the test of time if the knowledge gained is worth acquiring, and worth existing throughout time.

When there is no logical explanation for one’s conviction to a belief, there is faith.

What may have been logical in the past, may become illogical to a life that has transformed away from what was once seemingly valid. It does not change the logic of history. It just creates a divide between those that believe in the philosophy of the past and those that fail to see it as valid in the present.

One cannot foresee the logic of the future but can experience hindsight when an event comes to pass.

As Dr. Sus would say, “There is nothing to lose when one has faith in something greater than themselves.”

Virtual machines are created using logical arguments adopted from the biological system it mimics; similarly, to how thought processes are shaped by sensory impressions to form a perception of reality. As individuals, we exist in a virtual reality.
