A statement or concept that does not make sense, but it does; i.e. something is possible, but it's not, but it is....an example would be if someone says, "I am lying" if they are lying that they are lying., then they are telling the truth; however this would mean the were telling the truth that they are lying, so they are lying; so they're lying that they are lying, so they're telling the truth...it goes around in circles like that and there is no answer. It's confusing and hard to explain, I hope this made sense.
