Optical Illusion / Escher / Cresswell: problem: if a deception contains an apparent contradiction, there is no set of possible worlds, in which it would be implemented. - Solution: Cut the image apart. - Escher: Problem: to give a semantics for the sentence: In the picture there is at least one monk moving up and at the same time one moving downward. - Wrong: "at least one monk up and at least a monk down ...". Cresswell: there will be sets of worlds in which everyone goes up and some in which everyone goes down. - That seems correct.
