I have a box!

Can you prove it?

Without observation, dimensions or any measureable imput it is impossible isn't it?

Without measurable qualities any object is considered at best theoretical and unable to be proven to exisit until it has said measureable qualities.

It stands to reason then, that without some quantifiable way to confirm i have a box, i do in fact, not have a box.

A lie on my part?

Or a seperate concept of existence that mankind has yet to cover?

I argue these as new relative concepts to measure the box.

"Length, width, height, location, timeframe, observable, potential, actual, theoretical."

Without any of these it would be impossible to confirm the box does in fact exist.

Truthfully it would be a lie then.

However as the box could theoretically exist. We cannot deny it, in fact the simple concept that it could be "theoretical" is enough reason to pose it as a genuine object. Boxes exist, why not my box?

Further proven by the "potential" that the box could exist. As we know already that boxes are common objects.

We then would back this up with the "time" frame we live in, a box is also easy to procure.

We can also finally assume the box is with me, filling "location" as a known measure. Except that leaves you with the gap of knowledge of my location. The plot thickens!

All of this meaning if the box did in fact exist it would be measureable for all other

quantities. If it isnt just theoretical.

So i ask again do i have a box? Or don't i?

Confused yet? Solved it?

There is a way for those of you who can't solve it. Just take your time and think it over.

For those who do solve it, shhh! Don't spoil it.
