Logic Deceives, Usefully

The limits of language as an inadvertent or accidental sub-set of all logical possibility (as sum entropy of referential) systems possess a peculiar property of masking the limits of logic. Notice that within language we can assert total, consistent and compelling assertions as to the nature and reality of the system of language (or the world and its many selves). The limits of language are a distributed instance of a conspicuous abence and endemic incompleteness or void that haunts logic, mathematics and (by arguable and inevitable inductive corollary) material reality itself. We don’t often perceive this because we find ourselves so endlessly, narcotically distracted by the effervescent ambiguities of language (and cognition). We are, in essence, as bewitched by logic as we are by language.
