The paradox

Life is so full of paradoxes that it would definitely be mind boggling to keep a track. Don’t we very often find ourselves trapped in a Catch-22 situation? The solution to the problem takes us back to the problem itself and we’re profoundly confounded.
Be it science or mathematics, the paradox never leaves our side! So if a bucket with infinite capacity is full, there’s always some more that can be added to it. Tell this to a cynic and wait for the awe you expect. Unfortunately, he replies with:
‘a. It cannot have infinite capacity.
b. If it does have, it cannot be full. I think you’re asking the wrong question.’
The very beauty of paradox is spoiled by a tinge of reasoning.
