I rendered this question accidentally during a discussion with a good friend of mine on the logical constraints that govern our interpretation of the world. The thought struck me as arcane initially, but after some consideration it is difficult to elicit and direct logical inconsistencies. What I often find is that while questioning topics such as existence, life, the origin of "all", either inherent assumptions are present that underlay the proposed interpretation set forth or the question simply cannot be asked at all. We are both versed in Mathematics and Physics by official decree but tend to philosophical questions (particularly, on the nature of mathematics) with as great a fervor; thus far there is only a single question, spare the one in the title that we have agreed in unision can be asked: Can something be true and false at the same time? I am posting this in an attempt to raise discussion, as if the statement in the title does contain a logical inconsistency it would relieve me of the burden of continually questioning. :) (Not that such an act is a compromise or burden anyways! Quite the contrary.) Richard Feynman: "... and there are many things I know nothing about, such as why we are here - <i>and whether it means anything to ask."</i> I feel this quotation encompasses in the least amount of words the thought I am attempting to convey.
