Logic versus Intuition...

I'd like to think that Virus could play a role breaking stale dichotomies...
an action that is often associated with highly creative endeavors.

Actually, I think this whole thread is working towards reconceptualizing
the entire
"empiricism vs. mysticism" debate in its various guises...
(e.g. "logic versus intuition") The idea that the two are connected is a
critical wedge
against what most people blindly accept as 'natural' opposites. That goal
makes an
excellent plank in the Virus project, even as an open-ended query.

Worth noting: if you look back at so many of the Virus threads that
have defined what this is about, they seem to revolve around
precisely this kind of synthesis of formerly accepted oppositions...

Just an obvious, though sometimes overlooked, footnote. ;->
