The Principles for Imagination
There is a lot of emphasis on using Logic at school especially in the later years, to the detriment of Imagination. As we get older, our imagination dwindles and so we need to actively spend time exercising it.

At 6:00 a.m., a monk sets out to climb a mountain, to visit a temple at its peak. As he ascends the mountain, he walks the path at varying speeds. Though he stops occasionally to rest and eat, he never strays from the path, and he never walks backwards. At exactly 6:00 p.m., the monk reaches the temple at the summit, where he stays the night.
The next morning at 6:00 a.m., the monk leaves the temple and starts his journey back down the mountain. He descends by the same path, again varying his speed, stopping occasionally to eat and rest, but never strays from the path and never going backwards. Twelve hours later, at 6:00 p.m. he arrives back at the foot of the mountain.
Is there any point on the path where the monk was exactly at the same place at the same time on both days?
Yes. If you imagine two monks walking up and down the mountain on the same day, whatever their speed they must cross at some point.
The chessboard has two opposite corners missing.
Is it possible to cover the remaining 62 squares with 31 dominoes?
Use logic to work it out.
The opposite corners removed have the same dark color. Each domino must cover an equal number of dark and a light square. There are only 30 dark squares and 32 light squares. So it is impossible to cover all 62 squares, because you would always be left with two light squares.
