Basic Principle of Thinking Clearly

The human ability to think is tightly tied to the ability to use words, symbols, and images.  The capacity to think is then related to the capacity in which we use  instruments: words, symbols, images, concepts, categories, definitions, etc.
The human being thinks through concepts.  A concept is a classification that helps to understand the world around.  Man forms concept to help him think with speed and clarity.  Concepts are made for communication and the success of that communication depends on the exactitude with which the concepts agree with each other.  Wrongly defined words impede clear thinking.
When studying, consistent criteria should be used to discern the true from the false.  We should abandon all ordinary justifications and hold all knowledge under the most rigorous test.  It is this doubtful attitude that should be placed before every test and all knowledge which we should adopt and cultivate in our studies.
People ignore the evidence that contradicts their ideas, and the more vigorously they sustain their ideas, the more reluctant they are to accept the evidence.  It is essential to use all evidence available when study and weigh them out to reach all conclusions and get the best of all of them.

  1. To hear Allen Kreemer, commercial applications engineer at Stratasys Ltd., inform it, the House Shoes days of utilizing 3D printing solely to make prototype connectors are gone. He says harness producers can now produce high-quality connectors at manufacturing levels on demand, thanks to the Stratasys H350 machine, which was launched in July 2021. The conventional benefits of 3D printing—such as saving money and time, and having fun with higher design freedom and materials flexibility—appeal to harness assemblers as much as other producers.
