A thought process that one arrives in by trying to

prove or validate a statement, but in the process ends up with the

original question. And now for the diagram:

To prove

**A**, I need

**B**, and to prove

**B** I need

**C** but to prove

**C** I need

**A**!

What is a

boy to do?

I personally think that recursive thought is caused by some err in

logic, such that either one identifies the

mistake or goes slowly and terminally

insane.

A bit more

practical example. I started

talking to myself. Then I

stated that I was talking to myself. Then I asked myself why I was talking to myself.
