Please note that the text below was written by the feeling-being ‘Peter’ while ‘he’ lived in a pragmatic (methodological), still-in-control/same-way-of-being Virtual Freedom before becoming actually free.


Logic: Of reason, reasoning, discourse: The branch of philosophy that deals with forms of reasoning and thinking, esp. inference and scientific method. Logical argumentation; a chain of reasoning; the correct or incorrect use of reasoning. A means of convincing someone or proving something; the inexorable force or compulsion of a thing. Oxford Dictionary

Peter: The three ways a person can experience the world are:

  • cerebral (thoughts)

  • sensate (senses)

  • affective (feelings).

Logic, as it is usually practiced and applied, is cerebral only. It is criticized for ignoring the feeling aspects whereas its real failings and resulting tautologies are caused by the lack of application of common sense. Logic is the ability of the thinking process to move from question to factual answer – a process of reasoning.

When applied to a question that has no possibility of a factual answer one is merely indulging in ‘intellectual wanking’ – a sport that men, particularly, have selfishly indulged in over the centuries, both in academia and theology. It is fascinating to see the amount of time and effort expended by humans on supposedly logical philosophical and scientific investigations into the questions of ‘why are we here’ and ‘where do we go after death’. The major inanity of all philosophical and theoretical scientific thinking to date is that it is firmly based on Ancient Wisdom (a belief in spirits) and the concept that you can’t change human nature (fatalism). Thus logical thinking accepts as its basic premise that humans are forever to suffer and fight and, as such, the logicians endlessly re-produce and re-invent ‘new’ versions of the same old solutions that have failed again and again.

There is a solution, however. To get out of our cerebral heads and affective hearts and come to our senses.
