Our experience is consistent with this conjecture; in practice, multiple-valued logics seem to be used not to find new useful results, but rather in attempts to remove supposed difficulties with two-valued logic, particularly in quantum theory, fuzzy sets, and artificial intelligence. But on closer study, all such difficulties known to us have proved to be only examples of the mind projection fallacy, calling for direct revision of the concepts rather than a new logic

Question
what is dark energy and dark matter?
Answer
Neither dark energy nor dark matter is visible, however. So how do astronomers know they exist? They see how they interact with the rest of the universe. Dark energy is believed to cause the acceleration of the expansion of the universe and dark matter causes something called strong gravitational lensing, or the bending of light caused by its massive gravity.
