The Rules of Paradox Club

Everyone logician knows, “The first rule of Tautology Club is the first rule of Tautology Club.”

Some friends and I made some rules for Paradox Club:

  • The first rule of Paradox Club is not the first rule of Paradox Club.
  • The second rule of Paradox Club is, there is no second rule of Paradox Club.
  • The third rule of Paradox Club is, the fourth rule of Paradox Club must sometimes be followed.
  • The fourth rule of Paradox Club is, the third rule of Paradox Club must never be followed.
  • “Yields falsehood when preceded by its quotation when listed as the fifth rule of Paradox Club,” yields falsehood when preceded by its quotation when listed as the fifth rule of Paradox Club.
  • The sixth rule of Paradox Club cannot be proven to be the sixth rule of Paradox Club.
  • The seventh rule of Paradox Club invalidates precisely the rules of Paradox Club which do not invalidate themselves.
  • The eighth rule of Paradox Club is, do not follow any rules of Paradox Club.
