The basic thesis of the paradoxism: Every thing/ phenomenon/ idea has a meaning and a non-meaning in a contradictory harmony. The essence of the paradoxism: a) The NonSense has a Sense: (and reciprocally) b) The Sense has a NonSense. The subsequent development of the paradoxism: To generalize the literature in scientific spaces ( Lobacevski, Riemann, Banach etc.), n-dimensional and infinite-dimensional spaces too. Paradoxism’s delimitation from other avant-gardes: ♦ paradoxism has a significance while dadaism, lettrism, the absurd movement do not; ♦ paradoxism especially reveals the contradictions, the antinomies, the anti- theses, antagonism, nonconformism, the paradoxes in other words of anything ( in literature, art, science), while futurism, cubism, abstractism and all other avant-gardes do not. The motto of the paradoxism: All is possible, the impossible too! The symbol of the paradoxism: A spiral - optic illusion or vicious circle.

A book on paradoc. As a genuine Fernando Pessoa of Romanians, Florentin Smarandache - the founder of paradoxism - represents, in fact, through his contradictory personality, the first source of paradoxism. As a result of this society, Smarandache is full of contradictions himself.

Intelligent creator, Florentin Smarandache has accumulated in the while enough self conviction in matters of paradoxism and enough (non)life ( literary and publishing inclusive) experience in order to create a coherent volume, where nothing ( or almost) is put/let at random. After Introduction in the empire of error ( a manifesto of the paradoxism too, but covered with another... linguistic packing), the volume continues with a “short resume” about the ... terror/theory’s features of Smarandache’s (non)existence/existentialism. Then in the shape of prose texts or verses (it is risky to name them prose or poetry!) we learn essential data and information about the “becoming” of this (almost) exile in his own country...Palillula. As another Villon, in full postmodernism he lets his testament of a man who lives, confessing his ideological and literary “crimes”, but, especially giving nonliterary declarations about his murderers, which ground their existence on his nonexistence! Also among his memories we met -true nightmares of the author- the caricatural portraits of the previous leaders, lampoons worthy of an Arghezi.
