If you replaced the members of a duet one at a time and then the original members got back together, which is the original duet?

How do I solve this puzzle đŸ§© ?

You have Jane and John as a jazz vocal duet Blue Monday and then Jane is replaced by Amber and then a month later John is replaced by Aaron.

Then a year later Jane and John get back together and form another duet called Rainy Morning. Which is now the original duet?

Is Rainy Morning a new duet or is it the original Blue Monday?

What is the solution here?

Mettre Ă  jour:

Is this a paradox where there is at the same time no valid solution and all solutions are equally valid? Are both duets original??

  • Jane and John are the original Blue Monday duet.  And they are the new Rainy Morning duet.  No paradox exists.

    The duet is defined by its constituents. The original is the new duet, only under a new name. The original name is now a different version of that duet. This is not the same as the ship conundrum, because the ship is not defined by its individual parts.

    It depends on how they identify.  If someone identifies as a gay transsexual lesbian, isn't that 3 people?
