  1. Integral, which means that the universe cannot exist without it.
    Logic, as a branch of Meta-physics, shows relationships by formalizing them into mathematical expressions that can be conveniently worked with.
    If we think in this context, then our logic is only an instrument of the human mind, without the existence of which the universe existed even before the appearance of humanity.
    And if we talk about the logic that underlies the Universe itself, then, as a fundamental principle, it is in the foundation and without it there will be another universe.

  2. Man is a part of Nature/The universe.

    “Our thinking” is part of Nature/A universe that gave a person absolutely all his properties-logic, thinking, hard work and talents…

    A person can be proud of only one thing – that he is comprehensively successfully developing his natural positive indicators, improving – for this, Nature rewards a person with a higher quality of life.

  3. The answer to this question depends on what you call it, i.e. how you define the concept of “an integral part of our universe”. (In fact, the answer to any question depends on what the definitions of the concepts that are included in it are.) For example, laws (postulates) Newtonian laws that are postulates of classical dynamics, are they integral parts of our universe or are they not?

    In the classical (traditional) presentation, any law or postulate used in a particular physical theory is said to be the result of generalization of experimental (i.e., empirical) data. But you can often hear that certain laws that physics uses and comes to them are the foundations of the existence of our universe, and if they were different, our world would not exist (or something else).

    The problem is that these laws are still formed by a person and how what a person has come up with will relate to the surrounding reality is a big question.

    But again, first of all, I would like to know what is meant by “an integral part of our universe”in this question.

  4. MAN is a part of Nature/The universe – that's why people got the laws of logic from Nature/The universe.

    And all the sciences are not invented out of the head, but are obtained from the study of Nature/The universe.

  5. I don't pretend to be true, but I would like to share my thoughts on this extremely exciting issue.

    Logical thinking with its conclusions is like a drawing made on the basis of the image of the real world that you have seen.

    Analogy: a real city and a city map. The map reflects the reality of the city, but in a very truncated form. There is a certain correspondence between the map and reality. The same correspondence exists between the logic of thinking and objects and phenomena of the real world.

    Example: when we are going for a walk and see that it is raining outside, we can think and make a logical conclusion: if we take an umbrella with us, we will not get wet. We go outside and open the umbrella and really stay dry during the walk. The picture of the correct logical conclusion turned out to mirror the real state of affairs in the world.

    Similarity of the basics of logic and the real world:

    1) We think logically based on the law of identity: A is A.

    In order to make correct logical conclusions, you need to think about the subject within the framework of reasoning in the same sense.

    In the real world, the laws of identity (and the resulting law of non-contradiction) also apply.

    Example: A shirt in a certain fixed time period is a consistent set of properties.

    It cannot have two pockets and five pockets at the same time. In the world, nothing can be and not be at the same time.

    2) In the process of logical thinking, any object we think about is endowed with certain properties.

    We cannot think of an object without properties. Like a mental representation, any real part of the universe (be it a shirt or a star) also has a set of properties, facts.

    These similarities provide a mirror image of the logical world and the structure of the world of reality.

  6. We want to live in a predictable world; in fact, we wouldn't be able to survive if the world around us was unpredictable.

    Logic is the procedure of the mind that allows us to predict using the general-to-particular method. But actually, it's a little more complicated: with the power of our mind, we create a world around us that is already predictable; that is, when we create a “phenomenal world”, we already “prescribe” logic in it, which we only need to use for predictions. Therefore, it is not surprising that we may think that the world is” objectively logical ” (as your question suggests), because we have already created it as such. In other (not logical) ways, we simply don't see it (we hear it, smell it, etc.).

    If you have made an effort to understand the above, you probably already guessed that cats can also predict their, feline, world. Yes, cats can also think logically. Although crows are better than cats.

  7. Logic is the science of the laws of thinking and its forms. However, there is also logic as an internal regularity of something (the logic of things). In this sense, of course, logic is an integral part of the universe simply because it postulates the necessary existence of a cause for an effect. Simply put, the ball will not fly if the wind does not blow on it, and the wind will not blow if there is no temperature difference, but a temperature difference without the Sun's energy warming the air, etc.

    Everything in the universe has its own cause, but it is another question whether we can understand it at this stage of the development of science and knowledge.

    Thus, logic is an integral part of the universe, since it is built on causal connections.
