I have two question abouts logic. In occidental thought, logic generally is presented as bi-polar (no pun intended); however, I am not quite sure of the 'correct' formulation.
Is it:
either "A is true,"
or "not A is true"
or is it:
Either "A is true,"
or "A is not true."
and if you could expand on the distinction a little perhaps?
More interesting, to me, is that I have heard the assertion that there also exists a "quadrant" logical system that also works.
Either:
"A is true"
or " Not A is true"
or "Neither A nor Not A are true"
or "Both A nor Not A are true"
This latter form of logic seems to work for things like polarization of light, for example (if you have a vertical polarizer in front of a horizontal polarizer, no light gets through; but if you insert a polarizer at a 45 degree angle in between the two, some light gets through). I can think of some other examples as well; I prefer to hear your responses.
