My 6yo was using logic with his little brother of 3.
Do you like ketchup
Do you like tomatoes
How is it possibleas ketchup is made of tomatoes
This is the perfect time to talk about how stuff made from other stuff is not just the sum of the part, but a full new product.
It works in food, but also in, very simplified, chemistry:
- Hydrogen + Fire = BOOM
- Oxygen + Fire = FIRE (i.e. bigger fire)
- Basic logic -> Oxygen + Hydrogen + Fire = BOOM of FIRE
- Reality -> Oxygen + Hydrogen = Water + Fire = … (i.e. no fire)
