A paradox shopuld not consist of an unsophistocated oxymeron?? If I know what an oxymeron was perhaps I could answer you better ;)

But you haven't grasped the full paradox yet. Start from the idea that every set of positive integers must contain a least member. What do you conclude from this in the context of the puzzle?
