Pinocchio paradox solved?

Pinocchio paradox solved?

Lies are generally understood to have an element of deception. The enchantment (or whatever you'd call it) on pinocchio's nose has to do with morality, not fact. So, the first explanation, that he has to know he is telling a lie, seems to make the most sense. Unless the point is trying to be clever by inventing paradoxes in a Disney universe that is clearly not based on a 100% consistent model. In which case, if Pinocchio says that all the Disney worlds collide together in an epic explosion, creating a Big Bang which beings the Dreamworks universe.

    Paradox solved: Pinocchio's nose only grows when he lies. So if he says his nose will grow, he has not told a lie. Therefore, if his nose grows, then he has lied, regardless of what he has said.

    The whole point is the NOW at the end that you took off, saying my nose will grow is true, since he doesn't give any date or time, so he will lie again and his nose will grow, but with the NOW, it change everything since it is given in a amount of time, the same thing with this : What is the only question a god can't answer right? It's : Is the answer to this question is no?

    So, Pinnochio can rule the fucking universe. In the same fucking logic, in Pinnochio said "Either my nose will grow or I will get $1,000,000 in cash right now", simply because the universe avoids paradoxes, it would instantly grant him $1,000,000. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE FUCKING PINNOCHIO.

    Nature (ie the universe) doesn't avoid anything, including paradoxes. A paradox is an invention of human logic. Nature just does what it does, no [human] logic involved. If nature were to follow a line of logic that 'avoided' paradoxes, we would live in a completely different kind of universe. Remember the bumblebee my friends, remember the bumblebee! >)
