I coined the term "pariefracture" to describe the type of which this event is an instance. A pariefracture occurs when, in order to resolve a seeming contradiction among the set of beliefs to be held, one must "expand the conceptual realm" to provide enough dimensionality to avoid the singularities that appear in the initial seeming contradiction. This is related to what I said in your office that I believe "all paradoxes are singularities in idea space." The imagery conjured for me is "breaking the fourth wall"---hence pariefracture, in latin: paries = wall, fracture = to break. This is why I'm atheistic to the conclusions rendered by the argument style of "here are some statements---at least one of them must be true," e.g. in the simulation hypothesis argument of Nick Bostrom.
