On the Correct Functioning of Logic
by Lee Duane FitzSimmons
Information is data in its unadulterated state of raw simplicity. Knowledge is the ability of the human mind to use basic information in a pragmatic fashion. Therefore, logic is the ability to convert information into knowledge. While the word reason has this same basic meaning, it also possesses the meaning of "explanation." Thus, the word logic more precisely identifies the various conceptualizations expressed within this article.
In order for the logical functions of the mind to operate in an effective manner, it is necessary for the correct elements of relevant data to be present in any given situation. Thus, in order to make the correct decisions about any matter, the intellect needs to be functioning properly, and all of the correct information must also be present within the cognitive faculties. Once these elements are in place, the empathic currents generally associated with a balanced state of mind can weave their magic, and a more assured process of logical functioning may occur. Once this process occurs, then the mind can be free to work in its most correct manner.
Once the logical functions of the mind are able to operate, then it is possible to have exponential growth with these functions. This phenomenon occurs because the basic nature of the intellect and its related empathic ability constantly desires new avenues and pathways to explore. This continual desire for growth is the fundamental nature of the mind itself and is a crucial aspect that is necessary for the further development of the species. However, as stated in the previous paragraph, all relevant points of raw information must also be present in order for this growth to occur. Thus, without the fundamental data necessary, the logical functioning of the intellect cannot occur.
Therefore, it is imperative that information be freely distributed in such a manner so that all of the members of the human species can retrieve all relevant information and subsequently apply this knowledge within their faculties of logic. Once all relevant data is present and the logical faculties of the intellect can process this data, then the probability of a new scenario that involves the exponential growth of the logical abilities becomes far more likely.
