It also has no relevance to Zendo -- because in terms of the game, it doesn't matter whether the master views "all blue pyramids are wierd" as being true without blue pyramids or not; it's still entirely guessable and in points of ambiguity (on guesses), the master can check. That said, you are wrong -- you're confusing multiplying by zero with dividing by zero. All the pets in my household are cockaroaches. They're also all aliens from mars, purple, pink, and polka-dotted. If all = 0, then contradictory things can be true...which is fine, because 0 * anything is zero. -- Joshua Kronengold (mneme@(io.com, labcats.org)) |\ _,,,--,,_ ,) --^-- "Did you know, if you increment enough, you /,`.-'`' -, ;-;;' /\\ get an extra digit?"
