One must consider if logic exists in a particular realm of truths, or is it the empirical outgrowth of experience; whether logic in itself is logical and what determines it as such; whether it defines a situation that produces validity, or a lack of validity. Logic is ‘what should be’ within the correlate of knowing and apprehending. It is a movement of thoughts leading to a truth and the foundation of reason. But reason needs “meaning” which is instantly reflective and draws inwardly as the true. A thought which is illogical, reversing what is considered true, forms into “unreason.” Though it is a ‘misrepresentation of logic, this unreason finds a place within the logical since it forms, for consciousness, a choice between what should be and what should not. It is a surrendering of truth, but, at the same instant, a convergence of logic and reason. And what is logical to one may be illogical to another. Therefore, the essence of logic drifts haphazardly within the context of what is perceived to be true or untrue; real or imagined; provable or unprovable, coming together in the immediacy of thought directed toward reason.
