IMPOSSIBLE PROBLEMS

Some problems seem too difficult to solve.

Therefore, it becomes necessary to visualize the puzzle before
reaching a solution. Visualization offers the benefit of
abbreviating all the logical symbols.









Pictured is a sign called 'The cuirass of the amazon'. It is a result
of just such a logical conundrum. Generalizing from the solution to
this puzzle (since it is really the cuirass of Athena), we reach a
general methodology for many impossible puzzles:

1. Try lateral thinking.
2. Reverse the logic.
3. Apply higher logic.
4. Connect the dots.
5. If all else fails, try again.
