When considering the reasoning behind an assumption we would all like to believe that we have applied a logic based foundation to our conclusions.
My question takes into account that what may seem logical to some is not logic to others.
In the philosophy where we create what we think, and in the environment where energy alone is the only source of reality, and where consciousness does not exist and is illusionary,
I keep reading the words but I can not understand where that is, do you mean a void, Without consciousness there is only void.
does logic actually play any part in actually acquiring knowledge,
These are good definitions of logic.
To discover truths is the task of all sciences; it falls to logic to discern the laws of truth. ... I assign to logic the task of discovering the laws of truth, not of assertion or thought." - Gottlob Frege (1848-1925)
From his 1956 paper "The Thought : A Logical Inquiry" in Mind
"logic" ... [is] ... the name of a discipline which analyzes the meaning of the concepts common to all the sciences, and establishes the general laws governing the concepts. - Alfred Tarski (1901-1983)
From his Introduction to logic and to the methodology of deductive sciences
, Dover, page xi.
I think you are attributing too much mass to logic. Logic is rationalization, the round ones to one side the square ones to the other. Logic is the regurgertation of input information relevant to the subject, and when coupled with extrapolations of enviromental imperatives, we make decisions based on perceived outcomes.
Perhaps you are meaning the intelectual capacity to rationalize when you say "logical to some is not logical to others". The ability to apply logic comes with intellectual capacity, the less capacity the poorer rationalization/logic you can employ. Logic is a decription of a process that employs many parts of our brain in combination, there is no logical portion of the brain, logic does not exist without input.
or can any mind define knowledge and logic by any definition they so choose because they are creating reality in just surmising the possibilities.
Reality to the individual can be anything they can convince themselves of. It is the coming into contact with other peoples realities that tears physical holes in theirs.
