"Sorry, we don't have o Marcus Aurelius (121- 180), Roman Emperor any more vacancies," replied the owner, "but let's see, perhaps and philosopher I can find you a room after all" Leaving his desk, the owner reluctantly awakened his guests and asked them to change their rooms: the occupant of room no. 1 would move to room no. 2, the occupant of room no. 2 would move to room no. 3, and so on until each occupant had moved one room over. To the utter astonish ment of our latecomer, room no. 1 suddenly became vacated, and he happily moved in and settled down for the night. But a numbing thought kept him from sleep: How could it be that by merely moving the occupants from one room to another, the first room had become vacated? (Remember, all of the rooms were occupied when he arrived.
