...is it a riddle then??? I know it sounds retarded but is a riddle that has no answer, no solution, no logical outcome considered a riddle then or merely a saying that is meant as a teaching or something else. Doesn't it basically achieve the same status as How many roads must a man walk before he can become a man?. They both maybe wise in their existence but they have no real answers. Also riddles involving math and logic....if they have no answers then aren't they just anomalies? To solve or explain? doesn't that rule out riddles with no answers as not being riddles but more or less questions that lead to no where? I know, it is pretty weak substance but i put forth the question. What do you think?
