If Common Sense, Logic, Experience and Truth (however contextual it may
be) have not been at the heart of development of the human society, then
what has??

Human development has always been prescriptive of the contextual framework
of its time, be it through religion, philosophy, culture or any other such
thought altering devices (one may argue LO to be one).

It is not a case that logic is right or wrong but rather the fact that our
actions are relative and in accordance to our most natural competitive
advantage as a species "Logical Creativity" based on our experiences. I
believe this is the foundation of what we call learning.

Eutopia is the easy part of life.
