GENERAL SOLUTION TO PARADOXES
The method called paroxysm or double-paradox is to my knowledge the first and only proposition ever made for the solution of all paradoxes.
It is a method I formulated first in 2014, as a result of categorical developments in a book I was writing called The Dimensional Philosopher's Toolkit, a self-published work.
The method of paroxysm involves choosing the opposite of EVERY WORD in the best definition of the original paradox (except the word 'paradox' which is not included), and combining them in the same order as the respective original words. The result serves as a solution to the paradox.
So, for example, with the Sorites paradox of the sound of hay falling, if we define the problem as "definite continuum" the paroxysm becomes "indefinite definitions". If we define the problem as "meaningless continuum" the paroxysm is "meaningful divisions". Depending on the way the problem is defined, it has different solutions. This is the only way to be sure that the paradox is solvable.
Note: the method also extends to solving a wide variety of problems, in the sense that it defines what remains to be done. But this involves placing the term 'problem' with the problem, and 'solution' with the solution, because paradoxes are the only formal problems that remain problems when they are solved, and thus under my definition, are the only types of universal problems except in an incoherent universe. An example of a problem as opposed to a paradox is: problematic war is solved by peace. Problematic hate is solved by love. Notice the similarity to my method of categorical deduction. Categorical deduction is a more general method, since it deals with a wide variety of word pairs, not just 'problem vs. solution' and the opposite of a problematic term.
