Flaws with self-correction
Men tend to self-correct. If they try something and it stops working they refine or correct or alter it. At any point on this continuum they have a philosophy, opinion on the process. Often, these opinions and actions are only partially correct. Their reasoning followed a logical sequence but they ended up out on a limb somewhere. Their corrections haven't worked fully.
The reason is the building process of reason itself is flawed. Logic will only take you so far and then disappoint. When it works, it works for a time and that’s all, for it is too narrow. When it doesn’t work it doesn’t work. Only when sequential building on logic and decision making is defeated can one get close to any answers. This applies after a time to the practical as well as our inner self. What they are after can’t be obtained but has to be given and if not given it can’t be compensated for. This is humbling.
