Interpretational Impasse Resolution

Interpretational impasse resolution

When an agreement is made based on different views of the same statement, because said statement can be interpreted both ways. This statement often contains sophistry or rhetoric, and is entirely objective.

This usually doesn’t actually solve the problem of having different beliefs, but it does solve the problem of fighting about it unnecessarily.

A: “Religion is important for morals”
B: “Religion is not needed for morals”
C: “Religion supplies morals to those with a need for guidance”
A agrees because: “Everyone needs moral guidance”
B agrees because: “People who rely on religion for moral guidance need it”

Elimination by logic loop paradox

Logic Loop Paradoxes

Firstly you have to understand why I call it a logic loop paradox instead of an ordinary one. The term logic loop paradox, as you can see, is made up of three words. Let’s deconstruct it.

Logic – Something that can only be one thing, if A is B, then A can’t not be B.
Loop – Something that alternates on ends, that “goes in circles”; Infinite loop.
Paradox – Something with two parts, that at first seems to contradict, but upon further viewing does not*.

*In this case, the italics are the part to ignore as we are talking about Logic paradoxes, not literary ones.

The type of paradox we’re talking about here is the kind that loops infinitely because it causes the other thing to be defined by the other, and vice versa.

And an example: “I am a liar” (with context that all liars must always lie, others always tell the truth).
I would recommend trying** to find an answer to this if you want to understand what this concept actually is.

The actual theory

Since these things can’t actually exist, we have to assume that anything that creates one is also not the answer.
This can narrow down the search for the answer to things by eliminating possibilities.

 

**There isn’t an answer, all possibilities create paradoxes. (apart from “the context is incorrect”)

Infinities’ value

Infinities’ value

An Infinite number (yes plural) is simply one that, no matter how far you calculate it, does not reach a conclusion or a unit integer (such as the 1 in 471).
This means there are endless infinite numbers, or more accurately the word “infinite” is an adjective that can be used to describe numbers. That’s right, there are exactly 10 to the power of [(an infinite number of 9’s) – 1] possible infinite numbers; or 10 to power [∞].

“Infinities” as a logical mathematical term has all answers that are unable to be thought of. E.g. 1 is not infinite, neither is 2193187. Therefore infinite holds all answers apart from actual values. Similar to X*0=0 all answers for X work, as anything times zero is zero.

This also means there is one of infinite correct ways to answer a question about logic.
