Ah. Well, I didn't learn Zendo from Playing With Pyramids. I learned it from Kory Heath. :-) But that was almost 10 years ago; the rules may have changed since then.

Ambiguity is not unique to the null koan. Consider "AKHTBN if all of its blue pyramids are upright". A koan without any blue pieces is just as ambiguous.
