We do not know the outer world but the world representing to our senses, the world as phenomenon. yes, we interpret the world in terms of ourselves as humans, That’s Immanuel Kant’s worldview

As for logic, it was largely due to the language itself, for the meanings were largely defined in the words to use from which raises the ‘from’, symbol or abstraction, and ‘things’ – or I should say concepts which became the objects of thinking were linked to each other because there were potentially connected due to the meanings already defined in the language, as far as the connections are discovered or maybe though the reflection of the meanings(?), it is easy to put them in different categories for the convenience of thinking)

when people do not need to have systematic theories/models in the heads to apply the world representing to our senses to explain it to feel certain? Yes, when people perceive the lack/absence/need of it, people will develop it, in China we did not need to develop logic. So this is just because we lived in different civilisations. Intelligence is to grasp the rules which the mind integrates with the sources and reproduces it (yes, the intelligence’s creativity). Like the IQ test, there are three figures indicating the rules for us to reproduces the forth – yes creativity (calculation as many people define thinking as), it only matters when people perceive the need of it, once people perceive and develop it, and meanwhile they also perceive their greed… it becomes a problem! It can be helpful, and it can be harmful. Yes, need to learn conscience!

As I just mentioned calculation as thinking. I think thought is easier than art, the former is simply calculation, the are difficult only when there are sets of simple rules combined in and there are several steps to calculate. Computing imitates these well.
