Sorry, I shouldn't try to clarify the issue by posting an example (I am
admitting that I don't know how to do this)... when I say 'the example
should demonstrate a paradox', I mean that when you, or someone, posts a
particular example of why dark triples are needed, the example that you
post should demonstrate Peter's paradox. How does your intersectionOf
example clarify or otherwise demonstrate this particular issue?
