Is it possible to give what we don't have? - Back to the Paradoxes
Sophist: "Yes. Greedy man gives his cash with sorrow. However, he doesn't have the cash with sorrow, so he gives what he doesn't have."
The question becomes somewhat phylosofical.. Can one attatch a feeling to a physical object, (ie. sorrow to money).. Is there a higher state of awares that would make the money tainted?
Yet, while having the cash devoid of sorrow, it is possible to present the gift or payment with such a feeling..
I don't find this creation as a paradox but one of a phylosofical nature.. If one believes that something can be given with malice, and that the malice can extend along with the offering, then indeed the sorrow is attatched to the giving, as well..
The recepient would become the determiner of the intent, regardless of the greedy persons feelings...
