Relationships between thinking, logic and deductive reasoning .. I have to admit that philosophy is normally not "my thing" and that the reason that I found this wonderfull forum was that I was searching for something about physics and technology. My idea was/is to collect some central questions related to philosophy and try to make pair of questions/answers in such a way that it all will fit together in some more or less resonable way. The idea was then to post the collection of qustions answers on a web site for further discussion and clarification. I try to figure out and relate a few term to each other ..
