The Logical Prison
1 Introduction

This eBook is titled "The Logical Prison", because its purpose is
to show that everything is absolutely logical. The biggest
problem in reaching this conclusion is the difficulty of people
believes that the supernatural does not exist. Theoretically,
supernatural is everything out of natural, i.e., every phenomenon
that is not adhering to the laws of nature. The main causes for
the acceptance that there is: magic, spells and superpowers are:
ignorance, insecurity, beliefs and values.

The ignorance of: ourselves, the workings of the universe, the
mechanism of creation and our role in reality are some reasons
contributing to the acceptance of supernatural phenomena. In
other words, ignorance of the engineering of nature is the main
reason, to consider as supernatural many usual phenomena.

The insecurity of there is future after death also contributes
greatly to the acceptance of the existence of supernatural
phenomena. In other words, the fear of death acts as an inhibitor
of rationality, because it promotes the misjudging and
acceptance of illogical ideas.

Our beliefs and values may constitute barriers to acceptance that
unexplained phenomena can also be natural. In other words, it's
very hard for anybody to exchange an explanation that is
grounded in beliefs and values by another that is still incomplete
or does not exist.

In short, the fight against fear, ignorance and cultural barriers is
extremely important to the demystification of reality and
cultural evolution of humans. The battle will begin next topic,
because it will administer the only antidote that can minimize
these effects.


2 The Logic

The intent of this topic is to tell which parameter is essential to
show for all things imaginable are prisoners of the logic. To
accomplish this, it is not necessary to conceptualize the logic,
just to know that it is associated with the order and form, which
relates the components in any spatial or chronological entity. In
other words, now only of interest to know that every logical

The Logical Prison
depends on an order. The order is always implemented by a set
of rules, so it can be stated that the occurrence of any physical or
temporal phenomenon depends on it. The set of rules that
enables the occurrence of all natural phenomena is known as
"laws of nature".

In short, the logic structuring any body or event is always
implemented through a specific set of rules. The main evidence
for this will be presented in the next topic.


3 The Sciences

The sciences are the main evidence that the logic is supported by
a set of rules. To understand this, it is necessary to cite the
scientific methodology of research. The methodology of
scientific research is the set of rules guiding the validation of
scientific knowledge. In other words, knowledge only gains the
status of empirical, if the hypothesis that is holding it resists
when tested in accordance with the methodology of scientific
research.

The hypotheses are attempts to establish causal relationships,
i.e., hypotheses attempt to show cause and effect relationships
between different facts. In other words, the hypotheses assume
the existence of rules, i.e., hypotheses attempt to identify the
laws of nature.

In short, the sciences are the main evidence that the logic is
supported by rules. It is thanks to them that all sciences exist. In
the next section will show why any fact cannot dismiss this set
of rules.


4 The Incoherencies

The purpose of this topic is to show the main incoherencies that
can be credited to the set of causes that promotes the acceptance
of supernatural. For this, the incoherencies will be introduced in
three categories that most interest us: speculation, fiction and
falsehood.

The Logical Prison
Speculation is the attempt to reach the truth without the
application of scientific method. Speculative incoherence
depends on compatibility that exists between the variables that
make a guess. In other words, the coherence in speculation
depends on its adherence to natural laws, that is, the speculation
can reflect the truth or not.

Fiction is a lie assumed, because it doesn't intends to mislead
anyone, just externalize an imaginative capacity. The fiction has
no obligation to be fully coherent, since the main idea in it is the
amusement
and
not
to
reach
the
truth.
However, nothing prevents the fiction is so creative that can bec
ome reality. Jules Verne's works are filled with good examples
of this. The fiction shows existential possibilities through facts,
speculations and lies without the intention to sell them as truth.
In other words, the fiction revolves around the laws of nature
and does not hide its incoherencies.

The lie is information that claims the status of truth, without
subjecting itself to the scientific method of research.
The purpose of the lie is to provide a situation that is favorable
to its propagator. The lie enables to trick someone and then steal
it, recruit it, compromise it, conquer it and so on. However, the

identification of a lie is not always easy, because ignorance,
feelings, beliefs and values create an environment conducive to
its acceptance and proliferation. The lie can combine history,
inventions, fiction and even speculation. The credibility of the
lie depends on how logical it seems. To achieve this, lie often
mixes facts with inventions. The facts are adhering to the laws
of nature or reality, but the inventions have no the same
commitment. Sometimes, the inventions that contradict natural
laws are justified by creation of fake rules. It is this false
adherence to reality that gives credibility to the lie, for without
it, the lies would not be convincing or even exist. The lie is
incoherence in itself, since it only makes sense, because it
complements the logic of facts.

The conquest may be the most damaging application of lie,
because it allows manipulation of people to achieve any kind of
goals, even the pernicious. Through conquest people can be
recruited for various purposes, persuaded to donate their
property, to leave their families and passively accept many other
inconceivable things. It isn't necessary to struggle too much to
remember of other applications that are based on lies and
entities who take advantage of them. The worst problem of lies

The Logical Prison
is not its false base, but rather its goal, because many times it is
malefic.

The three categories of incoherencies above have up a common
characteristic. All of them need to create new entities with
superpowers or merge reality with the supernatural, to empower
normal entities, such as: people, books, charms, rings, animals,
etc. This happens, because even the imagination is hostage to
the logic. In other words, it isn't possible to imagine anything
that is completely disconnected from reality.

In short, speculation, fiction and lies also are logical constructs,
no matter if they are true or not, otherwise they would be
unintelligible. This matter will continue in the next topic
through the analysis of main justification for the incoherencies.


5 The Contestations

The purpose of this topic is to use logic to refute the main reason
for the incoherent information, because often its supporters say
that natural laws are not applicable in controversial issues such
as creation, the soul, death etc. They argue that these facts are

works of supernatural powers, which inhabit other worlds,
dimensions or universes, where the laws of nature are
ineffective. This justification is the greatest of all
inconsistencies, because the evidences point exactly the
opposite, that is, the facts show that there is no any separation.
The fact that everything in nature is transformed is the main
evidence that there is only the universe and nothing more. This
transformation occurs only because the universe has no exterior
to capture the resources that its works need. In other words, the
transformation is a proof that all things are subject to the laws of
nature, including those one that have not yet been explained.

In short, categorize any fact as supernatural relying on the
existence of other worlds, universes or dimensions is a very
serious incoherence, because the facts indicate the opposite.
