In The Class/Object Paradox confusion , the OP asks
In the book The Well Grounded Rubyist (excerpt), David Black talks about the "Class/Object Chicken-and-Egg Paradox". I'm having a tough time understanding the entire concept.
Can someone explain it in better/easier/analogical/other terms?
Quote (emphasis mine):
[block quotation of Ruby object's model the OP doesn't understand]
with no more attempt to make it specific, such as "so this means that _ is true, right?"
At first I thought "that's too vague", but I looked at the FAQ, and it said
If your motivation for asking the question is “I would like to participate in a discussion about
______”, then you should not be asking here. However, if your motivation is “I would like others to explain
______to me”, then you are probably OK. (Discussions are of course welcome in our real time web chat.)
Should the FAQ be reworded to replace "explain" with something else? Or should the rest of the FAQ be sufficient to discourage overly vague questions?
