Reason is simply the use of a limited set of human emotions for decisions.

I had my ah ha moment earlier and it was so simple.  Reason is simply the use of a limited set of human emotions for decisions.

The architectural makeup of the brain shows very little backfeeding from the supposedly reasoning side into the supposedly emotional side.. a 20000 LANE HIGHWAY going from the ‘emotional center’ to the ‘reasoning’ center.

Since you need an emotional ‘push’ from the amygdala to even decide ‘this is” vs “this isn’t”… therefore even binary logic is bringing a limited set of emotions onto a human created duplication of simple brain processes… and computers are – manipulators of a limited set of human emotions.

And I happily wiped out Plato’s ideals, Aristotles excluded middle, and a 2500 year old mistake with a clear conscience.  :P

Doesn’t matter if I’m right: “being right” is just an emotion.  That’s all we have.  Emotions.

Some of the processing areas of emotion are tertiary in nature (found a few nifty electron microscope scans and a few nice google scholar files on that one) – so a big middle fingers goes from me to the ‘law of excluded middle’ yet again. :P
