Sergey told a while back that I can't just reason things out. I have been mulling that over and concluded that he is right. In order to reason you have to apply a certain set of rules commonly referred to as axioms. These are truths so fundamental they cannot be proven, that also form the foundation on which all other proofs are built.
Some truths that I tend to apply to every situation are that it's a product of processes that I can understand, that when thorroughly investigated those processes will make sense to me, and that when presented to me I will recognize reality and facts when they're presented to me.
What if I am wrong?
