A philosophical and political take.

How do we transition from a binary mindset (black and white) to a matrix mindset without getting confused?

1 — First, do not replace your binary thinking for a non-binary thinking.

- Endorsing a non-binary thinking is the first major cause of confusion when we try to overcome binary thinking.
- Non-binary thinking tries to undermine binary thinking, which is not the way to overcome binary thinking.
- Non-binary thinking creates a new binary thinking which opposes binary thinking.
- Non-binary thinking often leads to whimsical relativism and absolute dismissal of objective truth.
- When you are a non-binary you are a binary without convictions whose ideas only feed on opposing binary.
- When you are a binary ideologue you are a fanatic without convictions whose ideas only feed on fencing out all enemies.

2 — Add binary thinking to the multivariate analysis you might do, but do not make it the axis of all your analysis.

3 — Give to the new matrix analysis relevance according to specific cases and do not make it a blueprint mindset to approach all your analysis.

4 — Keep structuring your mind in a binary way when required.

5 — Practice with your mind not seeing things first or last in extreme opposites, but in degrees of those extremes.

6 — Practice not to straw man your opponent’s argument into an easy target to bring down.

7 — Practice not to marry in a rush to the first idea you are deeply convinced about.

8 — Practice willingness to continuous update and transparent makeover of your own beliefs without being deliberate inconsistent.

9 — Use Ockham razor of analysis for falsifying and for validating your claims and that of others.

10 — Do not become the opposite of the non-binary mind-set, denounce their inconsistencies and praise when they step out of their non-binary thinking.

Rehearse the 10 steps above consistently.
