While reading Hofstadter's Godel, Escher, Bach once again, I encountered
with following little piece of discussion between Achilles and Tortoise.

Achilles: It goes like this: Two monks were arguing about a flag. One
said, "The flag is moving.". The other said, "The wind is moving."
The sixth partiarch, Zeno, happened to be passing by. He told them, "Not
the wind, not the flag: mind is moving!"
