    . . . The world is not what you think it is. In reality, it is fantasy. The gods control the world.

    The gods control us.

    Who are "we"? Who is "I"? Do we even know?

    Only the gods know.

    Since this is the case, think about this: we can't know our future. Therefore, does it exist at all? Isn't it always the present? And the future present can never really be known to us, either.

    The gods control our every move, they control our fate, they control humanity and everything. Therefore, are we real at all, or are we just characters in a simulated game, unable to control our own fates, not knowing what's ahead in our lives?

    Think about it: nothing exists in our world.

    We are a game.


    My favorite paradoxes are known as the Zeno's Paradoxes. Here's one of them:

    If everything when it occupies an equal space is at rest, and if that which is in locomotion is always occupying such a space at any moment, the flying arrow is therefore motionless.

    Chicken or the Egg?

    What about time paradoxes like you cant really go back in time to change history because your meddling with the past which has already happened thus created the history your timeline experienced...

    Or how about the paradoxical question "Are you a liar?" The answer cannot be taken as truth no matter how one anwsers it...

    Paradoxical statement " I am modest" can't ever be made because it will negate the idea that you are modest...even if you truly are.

    Are these examples using the definition of Paradox too loosely?

    Is there such a thing as an unselfish act? Even if you do something unselfish, it should make you happy/satisfied that you were unselfish thus making it a selfish reason (If you mention that Friends episode by god I will punch you in the throat...)

    It's a nice thread idea. I just don't know too many off the top of my head and I don't want to cheat by looking online ;)

    Here's a paradox that has been driving me crazy:

    Everything has an end. This we already know. But what about the space/time continuum? They must end at some point. Where is the edge of space? And what is at the edge of space? More space???

    Okay. Got it. No sweat. Understood. Never a doubt in my mind.

    Answer from NASA, probably unsatisfying but that's science.

    Whether space ever ends is a hard question. There is a limit to the space that we can see, because if there is stuff beyond 15 - 20 billion light years (the age of the Universe) the light from there hasn't reached us yet. So we don't know.

    I've been trying to think of some insights. Can't say I find many of the insights so far very insightful. :P I have one in my signature. :)

    As for paradoxes I'll have to think of something. The chicken and egg question isn't a paradox by the way. It also comes down to what do you mean by egg and what you mean by chicken.

    It seems quite clear in the explanation but the thing that bothered me since I've first heard about it a few years ago is that I just can't imagine how the 3rd dimension could be bend. The problem may be that I try to imagine how this could be done instead of just seeing it as an idea/theory.
    Thanks for the slight headache, btw^^

    There are two twins who came out at the same time from their mother's womb. One lived on Earth for 5 years and the other was sent to an expedition in space and returned to Earth for five years. When they meet again on Earth, who will be younger? (Note: Physics nerd alert!)

    My Physics professor in high-school did this experiment in class. If I remember correctly then the twin who was in space will be younger.
