“13.8 Mankind is a paradox, because we are equipped with emotions and understand logic.”
I think that is what places us apart from other species, is that we are not totally at peace being completely emotional, or completely logical, and yet, both cannot exist at the same time. As I said in this post, two and two equal four on a logical basis, but emotions would expect us to believe otherwise. In fact, if the Architect is correct (I’d love to know who inspired that whole dialogue, as it is superb) then emotions are specifically designed to override logic. I’d prefer to side with logic, as emotions seem to lead to some really bad ideas and actions.
But maybe they work in tandem, complimenting each other. One keeps you tied to reality and the other allows you to soar and dream.
