An old Russian mathematician once told me this strange story...
“In a galaxy far away there is a civilized species.
The skin colors of everyone in the species is blue or green. Among the species, there are many different ethnicities of people who each live on many different planets. Due to each people groups’ ideology of racial supremacy, they each have a law that says that everyone must use a special device to more-purely reproduce and only with those on their own planet so that the child remains of the same ethnicity.
This reproduction device has two chambers and both must be filled to work. One chamber must only be occupied by those who are blue and the other chamber must only be occupied by those who are green. The device clones each person’s DNA and from it produces a third person of the same ethnicity.
A real-case scenario once followed:
A cloned with B producing C.
C cloned with D producing E.
Then B cloned with D producing F.
Then A cloned with F producing an exact copy of E.
One day, one of the Es discovered a portal removing him to a higher dimension and on his return he had become $\exists$.
E cloned with $\exists$ and produced a special person, 0, who contained no DNA.
Now anybody who cloned with 0 produced an exact replica of themselves.
Soon everybody performed this process of creating a double to enter the portal in order to reproduce more purely.
So to recap, there are a bunch of people groups of this species. And they each have a law to ensure purer DNA by using a special device for reproduction. And they have discovered some interesting properties that happen when special people enter this device.”
After finally finishing this bizarre story, the mathematician asked in his heavy Russian accent,
“Now suppose there are a billion groups of this species under this law. As racist as these groups are, do you think that the people in them fight because of encountering differing skin colors? Why or why not?”
I think I may have misinterpreted a word because of his accent. But it all seems so random anyway! How am I supposed to get a logical answer?
