Two-step Logic


Most of our logical systems and knowledge systems are based on “two-step” logic models. The two-step model is composed of linear, “cause-and-effect” relationships. The two-step model usually states:

If A then B.

This model usually ignores that the world doesn’t stop changing the moment the observation stops or the moment the research stops. The A and B relationship continues to change over time.

The entities continue to interact and form a much wider interaction network. If we keep on learning about A and B we may realize that they form larger patterns of interactions such as cycles. These cycles may be nested within other cycles.

When our logical considerations stop at the A-B level we miss an universe of “micro-causalities” and “macro-causality” networks.
