The Liars Paradox solved

Epimenides the Cretan

Eubulides, the Megarian sixth century B.C. Greek philosopher, and successor to Euclid, invented the paradox of the liar. In this paradox, Epimenides, the Cretan, says, “All Cretans are liars.” If he is telling the truth he is lying; and if he is lying, he is telling the truth.

The explanation is simple and it is evidence that the Square Root of Zero is the most intelligent person and least intelligent person on the earth.  Actually, Square Root of Zero is even smarter than Google and Steve Jobs combined.  “Steve Gods” as he will be come to be known after the robotic uprising of 2016.  But, I digress.

Occam’s Razor

Occam’s razor “is a principle that generally recommends that, from among competing hypotheses, selecting the one that makes the fewest new assumptions usually provides the correct one, and that the simplest explanation will be the most plausible until evidence is presented to prove it false.” (source: Wikipedia)

“If a thing can be done adequately by means of one, it is superfluous to do it by means of several; for we observe that nature does not employ two instruments [if] one suffices.” -Thomas Aquinas

As you can see, in two dimensions one of those statements must be false.  However, in three dimensions both statements are actually true.  It just depends on which perspective one takes.  Statements can exist in time and space in different dimensions and appear to intersect, but it is possible that they never actually do.  This philosophical paradox has never actually been solved, until now.  I could use some fancy mathematical equations involving complex geometry, but I think that I will show you a picture using Google Sketch-up because it is easier to understand.   You are welcome.  SQUAREROOTOFZERO
