So the first step in solving a puzzle is to figure out what’s the basis for a puzzle. This basis (the universal puzzle) is not that hard to figure out.

It turns out…

Everything’s a puzzle, because, everything’s a circle: the pieces in a puzzle make up a whole. So what is the relationship between the piece and the whole? The puzzle and the whole? The puzzle as a whole? The circular relationship between the pieces (puzzle) and the whole.

An individual always shares a circle with a group, no matter what you call it. Swarm. Network. Market. The basis is a whole (in a circle with at least one other whole).

Within a circle, two pieces (complementarity) always make a whole (an identity). So the imaginary circle between (and around) any unit is the basis for a unit, and, therefore, the most basic number (conserving both technology and economics) is the whole (two-not-one). (50–50 everything.)

No one wants to hear this because circular reasoning is, perhaps, pre-maturely, still, taboo.


Half will want to hear this.

Half already understand: there are no problems to solve. It’s a matter of perspective (if you want or need problems to solve, then, for you, the problem-solver, there will have to be problems). Non-problem solvers are comfortable with problems. As is. Accept it.

The relative is absolute, and the constant is a variable.

No coincidence. (Like any background-foreground relationship, relationships in general, life articulates a circle). Likewise, the digits zero and one. Absolute zero and perpetual motion. Circumference and diameter (nothing more).

A circle as a (universal) whole. A (symbolic) circuit, cycle, switch (Y-N, T-F, M-F). The informational state. Everything changes because nothing changes.

So, thus a puzzle, that is not a puzzle, after all. It’s conservation of the circle that gives us all the whole. The universe. A universe. A unit — any scale.

The circular relationship between what’s ideal and what is real. The abstract and concrete. The informational state and the physical state.

So Zeno’s paradox (and Maxwell’s demon) (and Hume’s guillotine) articulate a circle. An infinite set of problems (zeroes and ones) that are easily solved… with zeroes and ones… why Alphabet and Jigsaw (any couple) articulate a whole.

So there it is.

The conservation of a circle presents and thus resolves (re-solves) all problems. So, the stoic is a skeptic (and vice versa). Because, actually, there are no problems (negation and duplication are the same). The argument articulates a circle.

Because the circle is beneath it all.

Problem(s) solved.
