About the Website:

The Logics is a hobby-creation by Larry Neal Gowdy (me). The website is not directly affiliated with nor does it support any ideology or social organization.

The Logics website design began as an experiment to toy with and to observe the effects of combining the influences of quality classical music with quality art within an atmosphere of classical western philosophy while also determining layouts suitable for different browsers and search engines. As the site evolved and achieved its original purposes, the emphasis changed to primarily only be for researching rankings while also being a means of my enjoying the relaxation of developing and writing articles about topics that I have personally researched.

Beginning in September of 2015, my focus shifted to simply enjoy the act of placing thoughts into words, while ignoring rankings and device compatibility. The new topics drifted along with my current moods and whimsies; merely being the acts of speaking, without necessarily saying.

As of May 2016, I feel that I have learned more than I cared to know of man's systems of knowledge, and so now I have returned to my original interests in life, while on occassion presenting an article about topics that better relate to my own personal interests.

About the Website Topics:

The information presented on The Logics website is drawn from my own personal base of firsthand knowledge. The topics span a small portion of what I feel to be useful information. The Dialogues of Nodin and William are a means of expressing a concept within a fictitious story that includes sequencings of Nature-based logic. The non-fiction articles reflect how some of the concepts within The Dialogues of Nodin and William apply to real-world life.

Please recognize that the articles are for entertainment purposes only and are not intended to be comprehensive: for several important reasons I knowingly and purposefully omit the most important information from all topics. Little is as destructive to one's mind than to memorize another man's words and to then believe one's self to be learned, and I will not harm anyone by saying what should not be spoken.

About the Website Design:

This site currently makes use of the Goudy Old Style and Segoe UI fonts. If your computer or mobile device does not have the Goudy Old Style and/or Segoe UI fonts installed, then you will either see Times New Roman, Arial, or whichever default serif and sans-serif fonts that your device is capable of displaying.

For several important reasons I only design pages to be viewed on desktop/laptop monitors. Users of miniature hand-held devices may find the FireFox reader mode works well when viewing articles. The 'metro' Internet Explorer in Windows 8 also has a reading mode, as does the new Edge browser.

About the Graphics:

Unless otherwise noted, all art graphics are now public domain. The exceptions are primarily those of Banks' "Hanna," my cheesy solar energy photos and graphics, the chess graphic, The Logics gif, and the various small graphics on the IQ Questions page. The new page layout will display some of the graphics larger than their native sizes, resulting in some of the graphics appearing a little fuzzy if you have a very large monitor. Some of the graphics might look best on a 1900 pixel wide monitor if you reduce the width of your browser. I would prefer to increase the width of the graphics themselves, but the larger sizes would greatly increase the kilobyte size of each page, which would not be fun for users with slow Internet access.

How to Contact:

Due to numerous reasons - including the growing global problems - I do not respond to nor read emails that do not include the sender's real and verifiable name. I can be contacted at The email address will be changed periodically to help lessen the quantity of junk mail. I generally only check personal email about once a week, so please be patient if I do not respond quickly. I do not collect, sell, rent, send junk mail, or in any way make use of a person's email except for my replying: private emails remain private, and I delete all emails that do not have an important reason to be kept.

About Copyrights:

All photographs, graphics, and text used throughout this website are either my own original copyrighted creations or the copyrighted creations of other's, plus numerous public domain photographs. I retain all legal rights to all personally created content and use. Permission is given to copy/quote brief portions (USA fair use standards) of The Logics web pages for non-profit use (e.g. in a personal blog, personal forum, or for school use, but never for commercial or financial gain) if the quote is accompanied with my name and the URL address that the quote was taken from. Use Intelligently - Don't Abuse Ignorantly. If you want to use a public domain photograph (those marked (PD)) on your website, then simply right-click on the photograph, save it to your hard drive, and then upload the photograph to your website's server. Linking the photograph from consumes my paid bandwidth, and it slows server access for all visitors to this site as well as to all other sites sharing the same server. Please think of all Internet users before linking a graphic. Thank you.
