Abstract

This is not the first sentence of this article. The above sentence can be both true and false. It is clearly the first sentence of this article. So it is false, because it says it is not the first sentence! But because this is part 2 of our article on Paradoxes, if we regard both parts as one article, it is true! We leave it to you to resolve this paradox.
