There is a lot of questions around such as why mathematics/scientific laws rules the universe (or as an alternative view, they are just our tool to quantify it, and universe exist as exists), but my question is not about that, I think if our universe wouldn't be logical, we could not apply such methods to describe it at first place.

From phaysical point of view, it "seems" to us that logic is the only "way" to think about our universe, because any other way will lead eventeually to a wrong result, that is not consistent with universe structure.

I'm not a Philosopher or mathematician, but I'm aware of different types of logics, like modal, fuzzy, first/second.. anyway all of them still "logical" in the above physical sense..

But I wander if there was any attempts to construct different rules for "logic" to test what that will give us? or to prove that there is no other option for our universe except to be logical in this particular way? otherwise we maybe can't have structure or patterns in the universe as in the one we observe? that is it will maybe lead to total chaos and unpredictability, and thus no math or physics?

3A glance at the headlines shows that irrationality rules the universe. I can never understand those who say that humans are rational, or the universe is rational. What makes you say the universe is logical or rational? – user4894 – 2014-09-25T21:58:09.377

@user4894 As I know rationality is a property of a conscious objects.. anyway, yeas I know that evidence of the universe being logical is same as being mathematical, and formal logic not very consistent with quantum physics, but anyway, we understood that using formal logic, and my question anyway is not about if it's logical or not, but if it is, is there only one option of logic type? – TMS – 2014-09-25T22:42:01.303

I remember reading about mathematically simulated universes which cause "weird" infinities, and using the parameters of ours did not. Can't remember any other pertinent info. – Guill – 2014-10-05T23:50:23.053

What do you mean by saying that universe is logical? Universe is just a collection of bigger and smaller humans. Are we logical? OOOOOOO I don't think so. Do you? – Asphir Dom – 2014-11-10T17:36:10.000

User4894 nailed it. – Asphir Dom – 2014-11-10T17:37:12.960
