On the occasion of his first retirement, I gave a talk on substructural logics to try to construct (not successfully) their in- terpretations by applying the notion of micro world. I have now come to regard the classical logic (including our reasoning and activities carry out according to the laws of classical logic) to form a micro world, just as classical mechanics and elementary geometry provides, respectively, an example of a micro world.
