People who are studying logic are often confused by me, as they are playing by the rulebooks. But there are several assumptions within the various logic systems that often go unchecked, such as the “atomic nature” of words themselves: that words can be used interchangeably or that words have strict definitions.

Within the context of logic, this is useful. But the world outside of logic doesn’t operate by those rules and I sometimes poke little holes in logic as a teaching tool: a reminder that there’s a larger world that doesn’t operate by those strict algorithms and yet, is functional just the same.
