Logic is the 50 thousandth best way?


I knew it all along. Can you imagine that if we shuffled up all possible axiomatic systems and picked one at random we would probably have a better formal system than logic?!  That math itself, is nothing more than the hidden rule of saying to oneself, hey, let us find something trivial, that we think is pretty and see if we can find some theorems about it. Does this mean it is kaboobly doo? The queen of science and the epitome of human thought is kaboobly doo?

Who would say such a thing? Myself? I just learned last month that for 92 years I have been tying my shoes the wrong way! Obviously, bumpkins are not bright enough to hold such an opinion. Doron maybe? Nope, it would have to be a super genius. More importantly, it would have to be someone who could say such a thing.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
