Rationality is a lens we impose on the world. Take for example pages in a book I’m reading that say “This Page Intentionally Left Blank”. That’s a contradiction, because they have that written on them, so they’re not blank, but it says that they’re blank. It’s LYING TO ME! However, just because it’s a logical contradiction and a lie doesn’t mean that it ceased to exist.

And because we can understand this logical contradiction and likely not get fazed by it, I submit that human beings are also not entirely rational, though many of us endeavor to be.

I r prolly ramblin now. Cause I’m rambling man.
