You say logic kills when it runs life and I am interested in that.
We only think about what we don't know, right? If you want to leave your room, you don't think about how, you just get up and go.
But no one knows everything there is to know in life. Some things we know and the rest we have to guess at. We logically guess and we have to understand that our thoughts are not truths. If we knew the truth, we wouldn't be thinking, right?
But unaware, logical ideas feel really good. Unaware, logic becomes an assumption and we try to impose it on life. We don't realize we are imposing and blame others for not playing nice with our ideas. But unaware, we don't realize that life rules and not logical ideas of how we think life is supposed to be.
Logic imposed on life kills joy. People don't get to be themselves because now they have to be obedient to the great idea that feels true. That's what organized religions and culture do to us, impose a massive system of ideas on us, preventing us from being ourselves.
So in the other thread I asked you about repressed feelings and energy. That was the premise for my question because all of us are forced to be obedient to some institution and forced obedience is repression.
This imposed logic is violent to our joy.
I want to say, isn't death and killing part of life anyway? I mean, we're all going to die no matter how logical or otherwise we are in this life. Also, there can be killings out of passion, can there not? And many might kill themselves because of feelings rather than thoughts, just ones that they can't bare to go on with.
Death is part of life. But life is killed before death by logical living.
