Alex,

I agree we can describe anything logically. But logic *is* a system to describe anything. This circular characteristic reveals that your argument is not a sufficient argument to posit logic above any other discipline.

For instance, language is a way to describe anything. Even 'emptiness,' 'absolute zero,' 'zilch,' 'nothingness,' 'void,' and 'vacuum' have names. Anything may be described by language. But do we purport that language -- spoken, written, or otherwise -- is a more fundamental discipline than any other? Hardly.

I agree logic is beautiful and powerful, but I do not arrive at the conclusion that it is the end-all framework within which everything around us operates. There may be something deeper.
