The barber paradox

Imagine that you live in a remote town in the Austrian Alps that only has one barber. You either shave yourself or go to the barber. But who shaves the barber? The British philosopher Bertrand Russell coined the puzzle ‘the barber paradox.’

Language confounds meaning. In the case of contradiction, everything is true, and nothing is true. It’s a gray area with almost no answer but in the exponential.

“We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives.”

Toni Morrison
