A paradox by any other name.....

Because in almost every buzz and in almost all the comments to the buzzes I have been reading I have been able to find a paradox, I have been inspired to remind you all of the Paradox Hive.*

"It is time to acknowledge that paradox is a thread that is woven through the fabric of life. You may be able to tug on it, but pull too hard and the fabric begins to unravel."
Sara Jacobovici


· something (such as a situation) that is made up of two opposite things and that seems impossible but is actually true or possible

· someone who does two things that seem to be opposite to each other or who has qualities that are opposite

· a statement that seems to say two opposite things but that may be true

(Source: Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary)

Within the definition of paradox there is an embedded paradox: The impossible can be possible.  Beside…who says opposites cannot be true?

My offer of the paradox of the day.

I was reading a post by @Sarah Elkins in which she included the following quote from Happy Hour with Einstein:

“While specific regions of the brain are responsible for specific things, we are aware that the brain functions as a whole system. The better the regions integrate with each other, the better they all work independently.”

The paradox I see in this quote: Independent functions work better when integrated.

*I invite you to post on the hive any of your articles on the topic of paradox or anything you have read or come across that inspired a paradox.
