<h1>So it all happened that one day...</h1>
<p>
I was sitting around wondering (and in my wondering) I thought
about what would happen if two polar opposites were to join
in a circle with a curvy line and what could be more opposite
than "Zen" compared to "LON-CAPA".
</p>
<img src="logo.gif" alt="zen and lon-capa" />
<p>
And...woah.  If two polar opposites joining was equivalent to
Zen and Zen equals the universe, then what happens to LON-CAPA?
</p>
<p>
How can Zen+LON-CAPA=Zen?  We could assume that LON-CAPA=0
in which case LON=CAPA.  However LON-CAPA is supposed to be
LON+CAPA, at least semantically.  Thus, LON-CAPA=LON+CAPA
which means that CAPA+CAPA=0.  And if LON=CAPA, then LON=0.
If we are working in an arithmetic system, then this is
all incomplete if we consider things completely.
</p>
<p>
It gets so confusing!
</p>
<p>
Maybe it is the case that Zen means that Zen and LON-CAPA exist
which means that Zen exists which means that Zen and LON-CAPA exist.
See how nice this is!  All this logic, and it fits in a circle,
just like the image up above!  Thus, we can approach a non-fictional
understanding to the effect that everything below here is <u>completely</u>
fictional.
