What I've found is that the ability to Reason - as a quantifier of logic - doesn't necessarily route out a false premise of logic if it appears without contradiction to the continuity of the identity enforcing it. If a contradiction remains it does so unconsciously. Structures of logic that seem reasonable are often leveraged by an abstracted profile of identity against the ability to discern otherwise.
Life hosts an elephant in the room so big that we've turned something that is the penultimate spiritual experience - while also being the only resoundingly absolute experience you know that you'll have - into the subtext of life's unease and neurosis. The psychological dilemma itself is death, which can only exist to the mind as an abstraction attempting to amend the absolute.
