I don't see how that contributes to the thread, Kobuk. Please stay on topic.

Is the word "heterological" a heterological word?

what would happen to you if you go back in time to kill your grandfather?

you have a boat made of 100 pieces of wood, every year you replace one piece of wood with a new one and store the old pieces, at the end of the century you assemble all the old pieces you have collected back into a boat. wich one remains to be the original vessel.

can an omnipotent being create something so heavy that it can't lift it?

A simple paradox would be going back in time to
prevent your own birth..

Though time travel is theroically possible there must
be some physical law to prevent paradoxes.

Is the next sentence false?
"This sentence is false."
-Yes
-No
Your sentence can be expressed as a Boolean statement:
"This sentence"=false

Then when you ask "Is "This sentence is false.' false?";
the answer will be true. ;)

If you use the "false" to kind of "tag" the sentence as false, you can't re-use it again because the I could say "This sentence is false".false=false so the sentence would be "This sentence is false". False. False.  And then it just becomes an infinite loop.

That wouldn't be good.

I was understanding your sentence as a statement, which I then interpreted as an assignment, while my question I interpreted as a comparison.

This is what I did:

Python 3.5.2 (v3.5.2:4def2a2901a5, Jun 26 2016, 10:47:25)
[GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5666) (dot 3)] on darwin
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.
>>> WARNING: The version of Tcl/Tk (8.5.9) in use may be unstable.
Visit http://www.python.org/download/mac/tcltk/ for current information.
This_sentence=False
>>> This_sentence==False
True
>>>

We should probably continue this in pm if you so wish to do so, as I'm hijacking the OP's thread by discussing computer programming and algebra, not the original topic :p  Sorry Sciex.
