What is the smallest positive integer that cannot be defined in less than twentyfive syllables?
(In reply to
But can any set of positive integers exist without a least member? by Penny)
Um, right. My question was rhetorical.
I was pointing out the implicit paradox in the fact that in your previous comment you proved that "such a number doen't exit". If we take both your last two comments toegther, you have just proved that that there exists no positive integer that requires at least 25 syllables to define it. This is clearly false, hence (finally) the unsolved paradox.
