→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: LOGIC IS NOT LOGICAL
vertical line Posted on Nov.15.2012 @ 07:37PM EDT by jaigon
There are infinite possibilities of the cosmos.  Therefore, the chance of our current existence is mathematically 1/(infinity).  1/(infinity) is zero, so there is no possibility of this existance.  Logic is not logical because if everything was logical existence would not be possible and I would not be writing this.

vertical line I myself am a scientist (although I don't like being called names xD). I find the language of mathematics to be much better than verbal communication. Mathematics is the language of truth. Because truth is the function of logic's and logic is the subject of mathematics (yes it is all circular. But this is just a circle I like). Now 1/inf is not 0. 1 over infinity doesn't have a meaning ;) So as our existence.

vertical line Yes, that's a good answer.... Well technically I guess 1/inf just "approaches" zero, never quite gets there, but still not quite big enough not to be zero.

vertical line Logic is Logical. Zen is not logical.

Zen is 1/infininity... = 0.. When your mind is 0 you realize Zen...

vertical line Agreed. Logic is logical.  Computers and machines are logical.

Life is creative and so is Zen.  Logical Zen is dead Zen.  We can create any 'reality' we want to live.
