The philosopher Bertrand Russell described how analogical reasoning is the guiding mental process that gauges a human being's ability to translate perceptions into relative uncertainties.

For example, when a human child perceives the color red of a certain luminance and then sees red of a differing luminance, he uses analogical reasoning to decide that while the color red has not changed, its physical appearance has.

This contoured process of analogy determines how the human brain perceives probabilistic decision-making and how human societies coordinate social attitudes towards rationalism-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Trading Places" (1983).

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
