Fuzzy Wuzzy Systems Logics

Systems logics are analog logic, and the idea analog logic must make as much sense as digital logic is the Three Stooges arguing over the definition of stupid and who is the best example. It would not be called analog logic if it made just as much sense so, get over it already. These are contextual fuzzy wuzzy systems logics that assume life doesn’t always make sense and what’s missing from this picture can often make more sense out of anything, because a context without any significant content is an indemonstrable oxymoron or vague abstraction at best. Although all of that might sound like useless gibberish, there are several ways classical logic can be slightly modified as fuzzy logic and made more context dependent. The issue is not whether classical logic is correct, but how it can be expanded to include more of the analog logic of nature all around us.

Using a modified version of classical logic, fuzzy logic can account for integrals while, simultaneously, accounting for differentials. Classical logic simply falls apart in extremes, for example, becoming much too inefficient for crunching larger numbers or for organizing the neurons in our brains. What classical logic is good for is correcting errors and adding beauty and meaning to much more humble analog logic. Descartes famously said, “I think therefore I am”, but quantum mechanics and systems logics suggest that’s just what he thought, because classical logic describes the conscious mind and struggles to describe the unconscious mind and humor. The smallest toddlers can sling zinger’s all day because, sometimes, what’s missing from this picture can make all the difference in the world.

Toddlers are the epitome of analog logic which obeys the classic “Kick it if it doesn’t work, don’t fix it if it ain’t broke, and when in trouble when in doubt, run in circles screaming and shouting!” Classical logic supports focusing our individual thoughts, inertia, and efforts, while analog logic promotes relying on a more social approach. Potty training toddlers will run back and forth to the potty anytime an adult enters the room, but will stop after a few days once they figure out how it actually works. Classical logic can provide shortcuts in such a case but, the problem is, doing too much rigorous thinking is actually counterproductive for the toddler. What they need to do is acquire as many facts about life as they possibly can, because they don’t have anywhere near enough pieces of the puzzle to make more productive sense out of it. Rather than thinking of the brain as merely a computer, you can think of it as also resembling a radio that the toddler tunes into their environment, while relying on mom to stop them from running out into the road.

A chicken’s individual neurons do not behave significantly differently from the whole chicken, expressing a scalar organization, and the behavior of the tiniest of infants is similar because thinking is simply not their strong point, and they are organizing using a memory-centric systems logic, that promotes the stronger memories. Hence, to really learn how to appreciate such systems logics, you have to apply them to yourself, and I often tell people “Embrace your inner chicken! Because you are either smarter than the chicken, or you are the chicken!” The more familiar we become with our own mindless behavior, the more sense systems logics like this make.
