Personally, I like this particular question. And I believe in the power of questions. They give us a chance to expand ourselves. Hope you continue writing. Cheers!

What does the question mean? i am not a native speaker, so can u please explain it..

it means whatever it means to the person reading it. since it is a paradox, there is not one meaning or one answer. hopefully, it will invite other questions.

let's see, if i were to light a candle, what would that type of light be like? how is it different than a lamp's light; how is it simillar? what would it be like if both a candle and a lamp were lit?

what does this say about how the two people are communicating?

these are some questions that might fit but there are others, lying in layers waiting to be discovered.

what do you think? perhaps not being a native speaker will lead you to questions and answers and more questions that a native speaker would not consider......how cool would that be!
