Not this. Not even close to this.

This stupid, stupid video.

]]>Well, let’s see what happens when we assume two contradictory premisses, one the negation of the other:

A & not A (contradiction!)

So A,

So A or B (where B can be anything at all, and ‘or’ is inclusive, i.e., if both A and B are true, then A or B is also true),

But not A,

So B (because if one half of an ‘or’ is false, the other half must be true to make the ‘or’ true.)

So the logical answer to the question is anything can happen. If you live in a universe where two absolute but contradictory definitions are both true, your universe is so screwed up that causality is completely out to lunch.
