Ok, here goes. As per Philo’s suggestion:
1. Grab the nearest book. 2. Open the book to page 23. 3. Find the fifth sentence. 4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
“If paradoxes could pop up so easily in set theory – a theory whose basic concept, that of a set, is surely very intuitively appealing – then might they not also exist in other branches of mathematics?”
(am applying rule that says if page 23 starts with a sentence that started on page 22, then this is the first sentence of page 23)
From ‘Godel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid’ by Douglas R. Hofstadter. A brilliant read.
