I believe this is one of the weakest possible examples from the book... though it may be one of the few that can actually be extracted from context without requiring dragging in a great deal more. I would have gone with one of the Escher examples, as it's quicker to grok than Gödel, and the Bach examples are, well, a bit of a stretch.
