Hi,

Just would like to know if i'm really the only one who managed to completed the ZEN section 3 ? or you just not have the time to update it (i think it's more probably that) ?

Later. Dya-Blo

Greetings...

It's true! Your the only one who has sent me the answer to the Zen(3) challenge. It must have been harder than I had originally planned for it?, hehe.

Since you like these little challenges, what can you make from the following statement...

"Today is Sunday and tommorow is Monday, Friday is before Saturday and Monday follows on from Sunday. So if I can crack this program today, I can go for a long walk on Sunday."

The grammer and spellings are correct, the 'facts' are also correct. So what's so unusual about this statement.

Regards
+Sandman

Hola,

Just a quick readthrough, but unless I missed something....

"Today is Sunday and tommorow is Monday, Friday is before Saturday and Monday follows on from Sunday. So if I can crack this program today, I can go for a long walk on Sunday."

Translation:

If I manage to crack this app today, I'm gonna take a long walk right after I'm done.

Is that right?

Hi +Sandman and guys,
"Today is Sunday and tommorow is Monday, Friday is before Saturday and Monday follows on from Sunday. So if I can crack this program today, I can go for a long walk on Sunday."

The grammer and spellings are correct, the 'facts' are also correct what's so unusual about this statement.

>So if I can crack this program today, I can >go for a long walk on Sunday."

The usual about the statment is that "today" is Saturday you are cracking this prog in Saturday ,so
you can go for a long walk on Sunday

he actual sentence itself is *unimportant*, it's been made to *look* like it's saying something when in fact it's just a piece of mindless garbage which I made up on the spur of the moment. As so often the case, we tend to 'look' and fill-in the *assumed* gaps ourselves, thinking all the time there's some logic *behined* it. But what's in front and plain to see? what's missing from it?.

I think I see the answer, but I am not really in the position to fully know the answer.

> "Today is Sunday and tommorow is Monday, Friday is before Saturday and Monday follows on from Sunday. So if I can crack this program today, I can go for a long walk on Sunday."

So the zen answer, understanding that logic is irrelevant and intuitive understanding prevails, is that we must take the situation into account. Thought transcends time. So the meaning is simply that you are asking whether Dya-Blo has learnt from completing Zen Section 3, not just that he has completed it.
