Its been a while since I've written much of any significance. Well, I guess you could say that about anything on here! But I think I've come up with a word that describes something I've been fascinated with for a long time. Be warned, this post does show how dorky I am and displays thinking too much about fairly dumb stuff.

Have you ever listened to Elton John's "Your Song"?

It's a song...about writing a song for someone.

Mind blowing!

A couple Sundays ago my Pastor gave a sermon about lots of the shallow self-help clothed in Christianity stuff that is out there. So in many ways, it was a sermon about types of sermons.

Ah-ha! There it is again.

My wife Sarah is a teacher. In college, she was in classes learning how to teach other kids. A class about running a class.

So here it is world. A combination of the word paradox and the latin word dualis, which means "containing two".

Paradualis: When the object or action being performed is of the very substance that said object or action is propagating. (sounds official right?)

Can you think of any others?

Professor RJ Gumby said...

Like selling someone on a sales training course

Or a player playing a game about being a player, not that I would have any earthly idea what the heck that means...clueless being clueless about having a clue.

OK I am stopping now...
