Lets simplify this and refer to logic as fundamental mathematical principles. So, if 1+1=2, and then 1+1=34 , the fabric of our reality will break down. So can we assume that the universe has a mechanism to keep logic "logical", and to help answer extremely fundamental questions like "what is the makeup of energy itself?"

@sapmi,
No, Sap. As the Universe proceeds merrily from Cause to Effect, abstractions such as "logic" constitute mere exchanges of electrons among brain cells

@dalehileman,
Dale, I agree that logic, like aesthetics, are properties of the Universe insofar as they are properties of human nervous systems. That logic is separately a property of the Universe was, I guess, a presupposition of Rationalism.

@sapmi,
No, because many things are contingent, they could be one way or another but they happen to be as they are.

Logic as a property raises the question of the ability of the property - if logic creates, this means logic is duplicated.
Can logic be both creator and creation?

@sapmi,
The Universe as a whole establishes the nature of Logic and not the other way around.
