proof by null hypothesis
- What I mean is - "proof by null hypothesis."
But I think the following Zen Koan
"proved" the same point long ago:
Monk: Master, please pacify my mind.
Master: Bring you mind to me, and I will pacify it.
After a while, the Monk came back to the Master with
the following conclusion:
Monk: I am unable to bring my mind before you, it is
impossible to do so.
Master: So you see, it is pacified.
