Question

I have to do a paper on paradoxes and ambiguity, and something came to mind.

is it possible to put the definition of paradox into a paradox. like having the definition be a paradox itself.

if you can think of anyway to put it or any idea, please reply.

hope this is understandable, i have trouble being understandable sometimes.

you mean like a "paradox often succeeds in explaining the inexplicable and revealing clarity in a logical impossibility"

ha ha, so that's "thanks but hm, anyone else out there?" ok let me try one more: " A paradox is a sentance/thought/whatever whose meaning lies in its apparent lack of meaning"

who would love a paradox that is a paradox. i may use one of these, i probably will in fact, i just like to get as many ideas as possible first, which is probably why i will end up using one of yours. it always seems to happen that the first one works the best but you wait for the rest anyways, so keep 'em coming
