I've come to wonder about how "logical" logic and rationality actually is. You know, people often talk about being instictive and being rational as two different things. They think rational actions are those which exclude emotional values and trend upon calculations and more utilitarian actions. But why?
I feel sometimes the "rational" things that people do can be equally instinctive. People who cannot find their way around town do the "rational" thing and just follow one direction until some sign board points them towards a place that they actually know. But some people who just have that directional sense would perhaps do it a different way but still get to the same place. So which one actually determines the rational or instinctive part? Process or result?
Some people are very religious about these things and just need to do it by-the-book style. But really, if you think about it, by-the-book is just something people have done via trial-and-error to make a book out of it. So, why can't we make our own book?
i'm really wondering what's going to happen in the next...two...weeks. something tells me that part of my life somehow depends on it. Or maybe it's just my "biological survival instincts" kicking in because i'm feeling really sick. Feeling abandoned once in awhile shouldn't do much damage. But what happens when you just feel it all the time? What happens....next?
