Questions... Answers


For this morning's 'Sunday reflection,' an oldie-but-goodie:
"A joke is told that Epimenides got interested in eastern philosophy and made a pilgrimage to meet Buddha. He said to Buddha: 'I have come to ask you what is the best question that can be asked and what is the best answer that can be given.' Buddha replied: 'The best question that can be asked is the question you are asking and the best answer that can be given is the answer I am giving.'"
-- Raymond Smullyan (in "A Spiritual Journey")


p.s.:  be sure to also catch my interview with Erica Klarreich, one of the finest math journalists around, new at MathTango this morning.
