LOGIC AND PERFECT CERTAINTY Logic *IS* a description of the nature of *IS*. IS is IS. IS isnot ISNOT. ISNOT is ISNOT. ISNOT isnot IS. IS is a description of the nature of consciousness. Conscoiusness is perfect certainty of itself and its own IS. Thus logic, being a description of the perfect certainty of IS, is perfectly certain. The fact that non well formed statements can be made in logic whose truth values are undecidable, does not in any way invalidate the perfect certainty of those well formed statements in logic whose truth values are decidable. Godel jail is reserved for those who try to make philosophies out of self contradicting or otherwise undecidable statements. True or false? "There are no absolutes." "All generalizations are false." "Logic is illogical." "Logic can prove that logic is unprovable or wrong." "You can't prove anything." "This statement is true." "This statement is false." "This statement is uncertain." "This statement is undecidable." "Is the class of all classes that are not members of themselves, a member of itself?" "Is the class of all classes that ARE members of themselves, a member of itself?" "IS is ISNOT." "ISNOT is IS." "Any statment that uses the word IS, is wrong." "Gradient scale logic *IS* more true than bi valued logic." "Certainty is certainly impossible". "I am uncertain if I am uncertain!" "I dont know if I am certain or not." "I doubt that I doubt."
