BASED ON TRUE EVENTS
I have been teaching Geometry this year,
and trying my best to explain logic,
deduction vs induction,
and the ever present,
always useful, abductive “reasoning.”
Without abductive reasoning, life itself
would not be possible for humans.
Induction and deduction?
Our car, (which only had 3 out 4 cyliders working)
started to turn itself off,
at apparently random intervals.
There you’d be, changing lanes, in what you thought was a car,
no car, just a large metal box that looked like a car,
with a seatbelt, a driver’s seat, and a silent engine,
rolling to a final velocity of zero.
I drove the box / car to five dealerships in town,
while searching for the best replacement for the box.
I can now say, what others have noted before;
when considering a car,
(or any thing else other than numbers)
