I lost this thread of thought.  What is your question, or what did you want
me to comment on?

I thought you asked me if Zen is logical or not.  I answered.  That's NOT
like asking me 'What is a cat?' .  That's like asking me 'Is a cat a dog?'.

[Bill!:] Zen is allogical - not confined or restricted by logic.

[Ed:]  alogical:  not based upon logic or reasoned argument; opposed to

'Zen is alogical' is a statement which although true tells us next to
nothing about zen. For instance, romantic love is alogical too.

If you asked me 'What is a cat?' and I responded 'A cat is not a dog.', this
truthful response would be telling you next to nothing about a cat.
