The Logical Path to Life is simply prioritizing logic over emotion. I believe people were meant to be beings of logic with moments of emotion. Instead, most beings are emotionally driven with intermittent moments of logic.
Logic is nothing more than looking at facts, clues, and pieces of evidence and drawing a conclusion. In that way, people should strive to be like and emulate Sherlock Holmes. Holmes possessed the greatest superpower of all, the gift of logic. It is a gift that many people possess but rarely use. Instead, people choose the emotional path to life. The emotional path to life draws conclusions and then recreates every fact, clue and piece of evidence to validate that pre-drawn conclusion.
Holmes is a character that has always fascinated me. His immense need for logic is challenged by his numerous character flaws and faults. In this way, Holmes is an archetype for us all. Deviation from the logical path to life has caused me to question my foundation. That deviation often caused me to make emotional decisions. These emotional decisions made me realize that my foundation was not the problem it was the deviation from that foundation.
Along with Holmes, I have great admiration for the core beliefs and principles of Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee mastered the straight-line theory but freed that theory from the foundation that was holding it back. His freestyle foot movement allowed him to identify his opponent’s least balanced point and strike with all the power of straight-line theory Kung Fu thereby devastating his opponent. When people think emotionally they are exposing their most vulnerable position. The logical path to life is an orientation which allows a person to maintain their emotions and yet be effective in a fact-based world.
