  1. I still realized at school that I should draw all the texts for myself in order to understand what is written there. All irreversible texts. They were uniform, but not logical, those texts that I had to understand. However, the reality is saturated with just such – both uniform and illogical. The world is image. He is spatial. I don’t understand how to comprehend it linearly. The image gives a vision of the whole picture at once, in all its connections … And here is what I thought now: this is generally about different – figurative and logical. Everything becomes clear to me through imagery, but I see the problem of those who do not understand something, namely that they are trying to apply logic where it is useless. Logic requires the unification of all elements of conclusion, bringing them to a single nature. For example, two concepts – “thinking thinking” and “logical reasoning” for their logical comparison should be expressed in the same substance. The imagery operates with sensations – that is what is a common substance for everything that a person perceives. This must be done by some very dubious substitution of the figurative specificity of the object in order to bring a picture of life to the condo simplicity of logical quantities. That is, an abstract individual who sees life with a set of finished formulas easily steers logic. Another thing is that his conclusions are then not joined with reality. The problem of the complexity of figurative thinking is the problem of abstractness trying to understand the world of an abstract.

  2. The answer is in the complexity of understanding of philosophical texts, in which many authors widely use the figurative language. Jacques Derrida, for example, can be understood by connecting figurative thinking – conceptual (and logic based on it) will not help here. Although the texts figuratively do not have logic, but is hidden as the meaning itself behind the images. If we talk about philosophy, the difference is only in the language, the author invents images in a logical order on the basis of the meaning that he invests, and not in a round dance of fiction that is non -existent. Although there can be much more examples from philosophy than only Derrida. The above does not mean that developed imaginative thinking is necessary only for specific goals. In general, on the one hand, it is common for our brain to transform information in two languages ​​- figurative and conceptual, which may well exist independently of each other (languages). On the other hand, conceptual thinking in principle cannot exist without figurative, logic enters its work on the basis of images. BUT! If imaginative thinking did not develop purposefully – and ordinary “school” skills do not contribute to this, then the image will be incomplete, and the logic will be subjective, supplementing the image at its discretion. So here it is also necessary to distinguish between the primary image, without which the work of logic is also impossible and the secondary creative image for the creation and understanding of which is also necessary for developed figurative thinking. That is, figurative thinking is necessary everywhere. No need to be mistaken that developed imaginative thinking automatically gives rise to imagination. First of all, it gives a holistic perception of reality in general (and text, in particular), since the development of figurative thinking primarily changes the structure of the sensory system and, as a result, perception from the outside. (But this is not to you, but first of all to representatives of the extreme form of atheism). Since I’m not just sure, but I know that this is the correct answer, I have nothing to agree with those who do not like such an answer (and this may partly be an answer to another of your question, you yourself will guess which).

  4. Logical thinking is impossible without associative, because our monkey brain works only in this way, and no longer. One side. On the other hand, our brain is able to control associative memory, however, the predisposition to this is preserved only at a young age. With age, our associations, no matter the false or not, literally “grow” into our neurons. In Russia, it is customary to say – the brain is yanking! Therefore, it is easier for a young man to convince in something, re-educate, retraining than an adult. In youth, our psyche is more flexible and adaptive. Therefore, at a young age, it is extremely important not only to build a true associative memory, but to learn inside your psyche – to work with the register itself in order to exclude false, subjective. In order for your psyche to be able to accept only reliable information from proven sources. This moment in pedagogy is extremely important. Many Russian psychologists and teachers ignore this moment, only speaking something like that: at this age, the teenager absorbs everything like a sponge. They do not understand the genesis itself why it “absorbs” why, and how. And very vain! In adulthood, a person is already more difficult to convince in something. Make him change the usual views, psychological attitudes. His brain, as it were, is already ossified – is difficult to teach something new, because it relies on old and familiar associations !!! Therefore, it is very important to focus in your development, depending on age. At one age, you are more given only to think with images, associations. At another age, your psyche is more plastic, it must be taught to work in a cooperative with rational activity. So. “Wisdom” with age – does not come to everyone. Often we meet a mature and seemingly wise at first glance, a person in his life, who possessing impressive regalia and intellect, carries complete nonsense. When we want him not to convince him, but simply to indicate to him the fallacy of his judgments – we receive from him the protective reaction of the psyche in which he “defends” his brain, views, and installations that have grown into his brain. They can be delusional, false. This phenomenon, contrary to the attempts of the humanities to explain it, is associated with evolutionary neurophysiology – or rather, with the fetalization of the brain due to disproportionate neophy during anthropogenesis. During the selection of the ancestors of Homosapiens – the most adaptive were those who retained the ability to teach something new. The brain of other primates is no longer capable of learning at the age of 5-12 years. The human brain retains plasticity up to 25-30 years. In order to have a selection on this basis -plasticity, a bridgehead is needed. Because evolution works only in this way, and in no way, creating something new, new adaptations, based on existing ones. And the basis for selection on the basis of the plasticity of the psyche in humans is an unripe brain. Our brain, from the point of view of neurophysiology, remains most of our lives, as it were, “unripe.” And he matures completely very late. It was the period of “ripening of the brain” – and the life and survival of our ancestors was limited !!!! Young animals shifted more old gerontes, because he had great potential for the realization of adaptability in dangerous and predatory conditions of wild savannah. To do this, our ancestors, young animals formed coalitions – and shifted another old male who was sitting in power. There was a conflict of youth – and old people. Therefore, we, growing up, try to distance ourselves from our parents, become independent, we are incomprehensible to the views of our parents, their way of thinking. In adolescence, the conflicts of the parent – the child begin. All these things, phenomena, war, disasters, disputes could be warned in advance if a person knew how his innate instincts work.

  5. Not really. Just “thinking in images” is innate, but “to reason logically” we must study. Well, for the same reason, regarding “logical thinking” there are criteria for correctness. Whereas everyone has their own images. And to check how correct they are there – there is no opportunity. It is also worth noting that the thinking of the subconscious and the regulations is also the same images. What somewhat complicates their perception from the level of consciousness. So it is worth mentioning such a hybrid of logical and figurative thinking as lexical thinking. People also learn to him, but before thinking logically. And so, I would not say that this or that thinking would be “more complicated” or “easier.” It is corny by the fact that they serve fundamentally different goals and have completely different techniques. And in this way, there is simply no adequate mechanism to compare them – the result of their work a priori is different. Lexical – for communication with other people. Logical – to solve complex issues in the team. Both of them and third – can improve and become more complicated. Thus increasing the complexity of the tasks to be solved. And a person cannot do only one – all three are needed.

  6. After reformatting into logic? There are a lot of non-armed. Remember the statements that the “brain is used” by 3-5 %? A little situation is different. So 3-5 percent refers to “conscious use” and not to use in general. Just the lion’s share of this activity occurs on the “dark side of the moon”. The imagery is based on the structure of the thinking of any creature. And is natural. The logical format is instructed artificially from childhood to teach the basics of communication to agree with itself, distinguishing and gaining minimal knowledge about the structure and The meaning of the world, sufficient to survive, is not so much a natural construct. This is the programming language written not to those who created the Object initially, but who later began to operate. In our time, with the help of logic, it is much easier to try to translate the personality functional to manage their ownership transformation from the subconscious submarine to the conscious. Log in this sense has some advantages, including a side medical. But often in our time a person, assessing the usefulness of part of these advantages, decides that this is enough to live. And at 12 (the first age), he dwells stupidly, leaving his conscious aspect in minimal changes, giving the lion’s share of control of himself, figurative subconscious. The man has doubted that the conscious logic in skills is all. He begins to “dig” into the depths. And at the level of 5 % it can accidentally find out that “the earth underfoot is really hollow.” It gradually enters the space in which the logical laws of duality cease to act. This is comparable to the astronaut who went beyond the ship and is trying to stay there for permanent residence. It is very difficult to get used to changes, but over the years, you can. Another thing is if from birth you were immersed in the leading parents into imagery and no one forcibly “reflash” you under the “civilizational” format, but acted as instruments built into natural, multidimensional development. There are no more than 5-10 percent on the planet. The rest of the pseudo -“Excavations” use the “bridge” driver “of simplified interpolation” of the figurative regime “of life in the” logical “and vice versa. The child lives in the imagery constantly from birth and this gives him a 1000 -multiple of development. He does not build in the early years of self -development There are artificial constructions in his head. Then, already along the way, knowing the world, he begins to copy them from the outside. Although he becomes more difficult for him to live in a similar format. For such an activity, energy becomes little, but it continues to be produced with excess, as in Early childhood during active growth and development; as a result, the body flows into “emergency regimes” and the person begins to “sausage not by childish”: stress, depressions, unhealthy desires, non -intelligence, a lot of diseases, overkill with pleasure. “Bridges” can now be called now Most of those who ran to the nature of living integrated into the “Slavic” trends. Trying to master the letter, CSA Karuna, Sanskrit. But the rare “bridge” refuses from the path of integration of dual logic and the rules of the current word formation when studying the Old Slavonic version of the letter and generally accepted concepts, which leads to the fact that he removes the fog from his life by no more than 15 percent: after all, he continues to continue to live in the format of logic “Yes, no Probably. “In which the last 2 points more often have a migimal meaning, or even completely ignored. For life in figurativeness, such squeezing is an inadmissible luxury. Which does not increase the efficiency of life and the ability to evolve- to translate life from virtuality: (past/ future) to the format of a conscious present, in which consciousness from 5 percent is quite capable of overcoming the bar 50 to go further.

  7. On the one hand, thinking is a more natural process for a person than a method of logical reasoning. The other hand, if a person does not have the fullness of this situation on some question, then the method of logical reasoning allows you to fill out the incompleteness of the image with a lack of information, which is necessary For adequate decision -making. Why is the completeness of the image necessary for an adequate decision? At least in order to see the consequences of such a decision that cannot be foreseen without a picture of the development of the process after making this or that decision. When you study social processes, such a picture is built on every new problem.

  8. I believe these are tasks for the next stages of neurobiology and in general -models of consciousness. There are probably those who are given logical paradoxes, the ability to hold the theory of graphs (google), and there are those who can draw a scene from the game from memory. Why is that? – Whether these predispositions are developing a riddle. Listen to Anokhin lectures, there is no answer in them about the advantage of artistic perception, a sense of volume or perspective, photosensitivity over the ability to build algorithms

  9. And it depends on your inclinations. Logical reasoning is the “mathematics” of philosophy. This is abstract thinking. In vain, the techniques of logic are expressed through algebraic forms. And figurative thinking is a tendency to “work” with more real, tangible things or images. This is relatively speaking, the division in philosophy, into mathematicians and lyrics. One – abstractions, other – ideas, images. This is a kind of tool that you choose, according to your abilities.

  10. Question: “Thinking with images is more complicated than logical reasoning?” The imagery of thinking is “a complex and multi -digit category of cognition, which has various interpretations in connection with various comprehensions of concepts”, on which the result of the correct perception and representation of the image depends. Therefore, it must be borne in mind that the very term “imagery” has many different meanings. The logic of thinking is based on the law of non -reliance, – (from the Greek. Logik (logos) and has a connection with the primary source – Logos (Reason). Logic – tool of cognition (orgon -gun). The attitude of God and the world – the world of ideas (ideas exist objectively) and therefore) and therefore) and therefore) and therefore) and therefore) and therefore) and therefore) and therefore) and therefore) There is a world of entities, Plato believes. Therefore, the etymology “logic” comes from the word -goal, the mind as a property of a non -dummer soul. But scientific reasoning is the science of correct (correct) methods of practical experience and this is already a method of formal logic. Therefore, the laws of “logic “In the philosophy of materialism, they are absent and even denied them, but replaced by formal ones. In the abstract or rational logic of thinking, the reason is dominated by the mind that is not able to go beyond the motionless certainties. Therefore, Hegel is proposed to subjective idealism. Subjective idealism offers a person above God and he becomes the absolute truth and the essence of all quality (and being as a whole), then eats b the coincidence of the object and subject, that is, one world of being: the Hegelian absolute spirit is present in matter, in the consciousness of man. Therefore, materialistic ontology considers anthropology, metaphysics, psychology in the form of subjective idealism. This form of worldview offers the only reality that is the consciousness or will of an individual subject, and the world proceeds from the content of this consciousness, but cognition is carried out within the framework of the corresponding anthropological teaching, psychology, metaphysics (Berkeley, Hume, Descartes, Malbans, Fichte, Nietzsche). Therefore, an attempt to solve the problem of correlation of the will of the spirit and man is stated in its first fundamental work – “phenomoneology of the spirit”, where the system of philosophy develops from the self -awareness of man, that is, from what will be called by Hegel subsequently “subjective idea”. But a person is limited in his possibilities of rational activity and the imagery of thinking. Because the rational-delightful activity of the individual and the truth, the reliability, the correctness of thought depends on the state of his soul. John Locke Logic is the morality of thought and speech.
