So on trying to explain how my logic works to a professor of Logic; realized had to turn my equations in my head into a physical format, so did a few additional ones:


  • $ variable.
  • +\- plus or minus sum.
  • Letters with no variables are a known.
  • X marks the spot.
  • * made up by me.
  • -> Explained here.

  • Inductive (Leading to) -> Data first to reach a possible conclusion : A +\- B = $X

  • Deductive (Deduced based on) -> Conclusion is deduced from premise: A +\- B = X

  • Abductive -> Built upon the partial data, we build the most likely conclusion: $A +\- $B = $X

  • Reversive* -> We verify data, by reverse engineering it like algebra: $A + $B = $X = $A - $B

  • Argumentative -> Everything someone says will have fault, and we can deduce where they're always wrong in some context: $A - $B = $0

  • Abstractive* -> Never anything solid, just observed together: $A $B $C

  • Dismissive -> Nothing will ever do: 0 - 0 (-0) = 0

  • Zen -> Things are observed, and comprehended... Then quantified by its own equation; yet never truly equated... Just understood: A +\- B = $A * $B

  • Tao -> Things are understood by their own logical relationships, and then formulated with equal and opposite results; as all manner of things follow this inclination: A +\- B = $Yin/$Yang

  • Please add to this list with equations, and will be impressed....?
