Therefore, as for the liar paradox, there's a time gap between ''it contains itself'' and ''it doesn't contain itself''. — TheMadFool
The assumption that we can form such a set leads to a contradiction, — fishfry
IF you assume that ''set contains itself'' and ''the set doesn't contain itself'' imply each other THEN we have a contradiction. — TheMadFool
But contradictions are impossible — TheMadFool
:D I knew I was sailing into unknown territory. Anyway, be lenient.that's Mad Fool logic, or MF logic if you will. — fishfry
X being inside AND outside is a contradiction. But the rule doesn't say that. It simply alternates the two states on a timeline, at different points of time. — TheMadFool
There is no time and no causality in sentential logic or set theory — fishfry
Illustrating a general tendency in applied logic, Aristotle's law of noncontradiction states that "One cannot say of something that it is and that it is not in the same respect and at the same time. — Wikipedia
I'm saying if we simply switch from ''pause mode'' (sentential logic) to ''play mode'', as we do when watching movies, the contradiction disappears because time changes. — TheMadFool
Well, I too think my grasp of Russell's paradox isn't up to mark to continue the discussion into anything fruitful. — TheMadFool
As for time being involved in logic, I think I'm correct. — TheMadFool
