    It's more like a nonsense sentance. Like saying let's jump into that picture.

    Is it nonsense? Why would it be nonsense?

    I can sense it.

    If taken literally, the statement means nothing. In order to make sense of it, you have to consider the phrase "This statement" to refer to a statement outside itself.

    Nevertheless, the statement is alluding to itself.

    Everthemore, the words are but gobbled gook, flopsome n' jetsome and then some. False be true and true be false, to be sure there is nay other way for a troubadour.

    In order to allude to itself, it must be separated from itself, for an allusion is a connection, and a connection requires things to be connected. So what has happened, in effect, is that the statement is intellectually split into two mirror images, one of which is the object of the other. The statement considered as the object is false, and the statement considered as the subject is true.

    It's obvious Tater - the statement itself answers the question.

    And the answer is plain and simple and right in front of our noses. And it is -

    "This statement is False".

    I thought this was going to be a true or false game.

    Is this statement true or false:
