Yikes. Correction. In my model it is the *deductive*
mode of thought that dominates moral reasoning. (At
the highest level of coarse graining of the mind
morality is *deductive*). The *inductive* non-linear
mode dominates physics reasoning (At the highest level
of coarse graining of the mind physics reasoning is *inductive*).
