Consider it as boolean logic: "contains only grounded pyramids" can be
transformed into "contains no non-grounded pyramids", which clearly _is_
satisfied by the null koan. It is precisely because some players think
in boolean terms and others don't that this could be considered

(Also, as Daniel pointed out, it makes it easy to lose track of just
what's going on on the table.)
