It is also through Eric and Jen that we as the reader to learn about the secret, real life S. As Jen and Eric dig further into the life and work of Straka, they become threatened by the enemies of the S. The interplay of the different levels of the story make for a compelling, though sometimes disjointed read. The margin notes between Eric and Jen are also written in different colors which signify the passing of time and rereads done by them during the course of their relationship and the novel.

The final component of the novel is the array of artifacts stuck in the pages by both Eric and Jen and includes everything from postcards, multiple page letters, and a hand-drawn map on a napkin.

This is the part of the book that cannot be recreated in a digital form. The pages themselves are also worn and yellowed by time and marred with water spots and grim by the various readers before Eric kept the book for himself. They pass the book via dead drops on the academic library bookshelves until that gets too risky and then switch to an electrical box in the planetarium. They take days and sometimes weeks to have conversations within the margins of the book.

Joked about in an episode of Family Guy. American philosopher Theodore Sider proposed a solution to this paradox by considering objects from a four-dimensional perspective rather than a three-dimensional one.

If objects are thought of as a four-dimensional "river" of three-dimensional "time slices," then each "slice" could still be part of the "river" while remaining unique from one another.

In this way, an object can still be considered itself even when all of its components are eventually replaced. Another way to put it is that the essential "identity" of something can "fix itself" over time, as long as the process is gradual. One practical way to look at it is product brand refreshes.

The whole "new look, same great whatever " depends on consumers recognizing the refreshed packaging as the same product, getting used to it over time, and then the process repeats again down the line.

While cells do continually die off and are replaced with new ones, they do so at different rates, with no regular cycle of years. There are also exceptions, such as neurons in the brain and parts of the skeletal structure, which last a lifetime and are not replenished.

Therefore, after a few decades, a person will be composed of almost entirely different physical matter. A number of wooden vessels built during the Age of Sail exist to this day, but over the course of their lifespan they have had numerous refits in which timbers in disrepair or rot were replaced with new material: The first rate ship-of-the-line HMS Victory , the oldest actively commissioned warship. In a interview, one of her commanding officers LCDR John Scivier estimated that 10 to 15 percent of her hull remains original.

Unlike Constitution and Victory —which most agree are not replicas—the War of -vintage brig Niagra is more commonly considered a replica rather than the restored original.

Her third reconstruction in found that most of the wood comprising her hull was badly decayed, and so the ship was almost completely rebuilt save for various non-structural timbers which were salvaged and reused. There have been cases of multiple different automobiles each having a claim to being the "original" vehicle driven by a famous celebrity or racer, as a result of the vehicle having been broken down for parts at some point, leading to there being, for instance, one vehicle based upon the original chassis, another with the original bodywork, and a third with the original engine.

Buddhism considers every aspect of reality to be affected by this, but with a special focus on humans and our personalities, since we constantly change at a slow but steady rate. So are you the same person you were ten years ago? On a broader note, since everything is constantly changing nothing can really be said to exist or be stable, and trying to deny this or ignore it causes suffering.

One way to look at this problem from a computer science perspective is to look at the difference between call-by-value and call-by-reference.

Call-by-reference passes in the location itself, which will probably work the same way unless the data in that location changes later on. So how do you tell if two variables are "the same? Happened to Douglas Adams when he visits Kinkaku-ji in Japan which he wrote about in his non-fiction book Last Chance to See , and finds that it looks suspiciously new. Each piece is another clue to solving a mystery or for beginning one.

Like the ship in Ship of Theseus , S. To look at it, any copy of Ship of Theseus seems to be the very copy Jen and Eric passed back and forth, their point of contact and silent messenger, telling each other what they felt and thought about the novel, its author, and each other.

It is an odd way to communicate, but it works for them. Jen is a well-read literature major, working in library special collections; Eric is a bitter graduate student bullied by his advisor and supported by an obscure foundation. Jen invites Eric to use email, but he believes the book is safer and its cargo of messages is too dear to abandon. The book is the haven where they fall in love and a work site where they probe the secrets of Ship of Theseus.

Their efforts to discover who Straka was and what his novel says about him turns out to be deadly serious business, impeded by fires, thefts, unscrupulous rivals, and betrayals.

Jen and Eric warn each other: Who is this dangerous author, V. Thought this comic would continue with its original script: Germany anschlusses Greece and say it was his proto-self who have done that.

Absolutely great, I thought hte punchline was just greece getting out of debts and the second punchline was unexpected.

We are slowly hacking Putin so that he spreads freedom all over Russia and no would believe it if I told them. Re-do the entire comic again with the corrected hat and gain sweet karma for meta commentary. After being forced to pay debts, Greece goes for the Zeno route of repayment, and Germany will never get all their money. They have to pay half of the money, and before that they have to pay half of that half, and before that half of that, etc.

Unless is using shapes and ratios to explaining the calculus is probable possible, but hard then Greece is going to pretend not to understand fancy maths. I think I get that. The issue becomes explaining limits geometrically Zeno, as in, the emperor? Mind refreshing my memory about his repayment methods, or are you talking about something else? Not to be confused with the 40th millennium Xeno, which is just a log for the fire of the Imperium.

You work towards order , which is freedom from chaos America can into progress. Naw, we have just about the right amount of connection now. Who wants Russian oligarchs coming in, taking everything over and turning us into Sumer Ukraine?

USS Constitution has been almost completely rebuilt over years, but a little bit at a time. USS Niagara was broken up and small pieces of the original ship were used to buld a new one that looks just the same. The first, and many like her are considered continuations of the same ship, while the latter, anx many like her are consideref reproductions. Where is the line?
