Most Effective Logic
Posted 9/29/12
In this thread, we discuss types of logic, such as informal, formal, symbolic, and mathematical, to determine which is most effective overall.

I'm a trained economist and in testing hypotheses we employ formal and mathematical logic types I believe. Say you've hypothesised something and then you got to state your hypothesis (null and alternative), formulate an analysis plan, analyse sample data and interpret your results. The logic types complement each other and becomes more effective when used together.

A combined logic, logical process! Everything works better when you have strategized teams. That does make a lot of sense.

I also think of a logic having to do with positives. You see an acorn, and what is it for? Some may think it's just food for a squirrel. Then someone with further sight sees that the acorn has more than one purpose. It creates new trees, which are homes to more creature and provide more nourishment for the creatures that eat them. And the cycle continues infinitely, with the simple resource of one seed having all the potential to start in motion a succession of millions and billions of seeds creating even more still.

One might see that mere single acorn as a useless thing. Or some might see an acorn as a good luck charm. Maybe it's just something to throw at somebody. Slingshot ammo! It can be anything the user wants it to be, or everything it can be.

With something negative, if that was even a law dictating everything to an absolute, well, there wouldn't even be an acorn. Just nothing. Not even the word acorn, or this entry of mine into this forum... which would also not exist.

There's no most effective logic. While mathematical and deductive logic is certainly potent, it's not applicable to solving all problems without creating a model that is oversimplified. When it doesn't work, intuitive and more inductive logic must supplement its place.

While each situation requires a different logic, we mustn't forget instinctual logic. The kind your body uses before your mind can do something. While in modern days, instincts aren't always that effective, they can be manipulated into a great tool. Any sports player, for example, has changed their instincts to help them compete in the game. If you watch a basketball player, whenever they have a ball, they will almost always dribble it, even when they aren't playing, because they have adapted their instincts to work that way.

On a completely different note, sometimes it is more entertaining, although effective can be questioned all day long, to have no logic. That isn't to say do dumb things, but rather act without much deep thought. Why climb the tree? Because it's there. Where do we want to go? Start driving and we will end where we want. I am a big fan of this and use it quite often. Best way to find dinner is to start going down the road, and eat at the first place that looks good.

Propositional logic, anyone?
Posted 10/3/12
I've studied Logic for a semester and all of these depends on the situation that is based..
For example, Math.. Obviously, the most effective part is the mathematical logic since it fits the situation...
This topic is not specifically speaking. It's too broad. Only my opinion

True. Though various outcomes make this interesting.

I like computational thinking. You test something until it's result is close enough to use.

Yes I agree.. It's one thing that makes you easily see how accurate you are to get the correct answer..
That's why I love Math

I'm currently learning programming, so I can potentially devise a useful program for people to use, thus giving me a cash cow.

Beyond that, any useful creations to continuously build upon growth, etc, etc.

That;s cool. I used to do programming back then. I stopped when I was forced to shift to electronics for some inevitable circumstances.. It's a very sad thought.. I miss programming like hell

Who knows. You might end up developing a new gadget the world will swoon over. Always remember ergonomics and over-pricing.

I guess I'm just disappointed with the school and all the dramas.. I mean electronics is fun and interesting but I feel much accomplished with programming.. I really don't know why..

Logic points to it being your thing.

Yes and if only I have the freedom to choose.. I will definitely go with it..
