Reasoning - heuristics and induction
Induction is a form of inference. We use it when we don’t really know all the functions or facts, but our observations have shown us that a certain set of circumstances seems to produce a specific outcome.
Most of what we do is based on heuristics and not a real understanding of every step on the path to an outcome. This is particularly true when it comes to the systems of the universe – practically everything we have stored away in our mental models of the world of nature is heuristical, which means that what we use is guesswork really, not real knowledge.
