Chomsky has a cat called Mimi who sleeps at the bottom of his bed at night.
When Chomsky is asleep everything in his dreams that he believes to be true is in fact false. In dreams he believes that chairs can talk and that books can swim.
When he’s awake he knows that chairs can’t talk and that books can’t swim because eveything Chomsky believes when he’s awake is true
One night as the clock strikes midnight, Chomsky believes that both he and Mimi are asleep. Was Mimi in fact awake or asleep?
