In the morning, the thought arose that if a person following this rule has 2 flashlights with him and is asked how many lanterns he has, he will answer that 1. If he has 3 physical lanterns with him, then he will also have to answer, that he has 1 lantern, since 2 = 1 and 1 = 0. If he has 4 lanterns, then he will answer that he has 2 lanterns. If he has 5 lanterns, then he will also answer that he has 2 lanterns. It turns out that odd numbers do not exist, but there are only even numbers in this formula. What about physical lanterns that do not fall into this formula?
If a person has only 1 lantern, and he is asked about the presence of a lantern and he answers that he does not have lanterns, is he lying?
