Relations

In by Michael on March 9, 2011 at 3:05 pm

There is a finite number of logical relations in the world. Take two entities, A and B, and they are related somehow.

A is necessary for B

A is sufficient for B

A is part of B

A comes before B

A is more X than B

A becomes B

A is near B

This makes learning things easy. There’s a set of relations, and learning is just about plugging in different values for A and B. Biology isn’t that different from music or chess. Analogy is the root of all cognition. The more you learn the easier it gets.
