Hi Harv,

>>>I think it is slightly a misconception to say that the rules of logic/mathematics exist unless we define the term 'exist'. By that term in this instance I am saying that they exert causal powers onto phenomenal reality (for a certain class this phenomenal reality may not be physical but in the minds of mathematicans and logicians). The rules themselves are not phenomenal.>If genuine paradoxes of math and logic hold (i.e., not resolvable by any effort conceivable) then this would imply that the logic that disacknowledges paradoxes is either a restricted case of a much more permissive logic reality or that my whole platonist concept is totally thrown in the dumpster!
