Silence Vs Weeping Angel

I keep seeing this one all over the Internet as an example of one of those "immovable object meeting irresistible force" paradoxes, so I thought I should address it here.

This really wouldn't last long.

If the Weeping Angel and the Silence looked at each other, the Weeping Angel would be frozen in place until the Silence looked away. At that point, the Weeping Angel can move, and it can still see the Silence, so it wouldn't forget the Silence. It'd just charge up to it and zap it back in time 80 years or so.

At that point, it would perhaps wonder why it felt so full, but it wouldn't be much of a contest.

You make a good point, particularly about the Weeping Angel wondering why it was so full. If the Silence is keen to the Weeping Angel's game though, couldn't the Silence simply circle around to the Weeping Angel's backside with it's eyes fixed on it at which point the Angel would forget the Silence was there?

Enjoying the blog, keep it up!
