What is the meaning of impossible?
5 Dec 06
If nothing is impossible then it would be impossible to think of something impossible, but I just did, so how is it? Is nothing impossible or are some things impossible? Of course there are things that are LOGICALLY impossible; the expression "nothing is impossible" is a psychological position, not a logical one. It is also hype. A person who has no legs cannot become a ballet dancer, not in this lifetime. A person with a minimum IQ cannot get a legitimate Ph.D. Some things which may not technically be impossible are realistically so because a person does not try. I cannot drive a car because I am unwilling to try to learn at my age, and because my eyes are too bad to qualify for a license. Thus, it is "impossible" for me to legally drive a car, and I am unwilling to attempt to do it illegally.
