Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


If it seems I ramify factitious claims, letting lies beget lies, well... pseudology is my praxis.

(by Rudi)



In order to review these applications, we must separate out the factitious biographies from the real ones by changing our praxis of accepting everything that has been submitted as the truth, and ramify what we receive into categories designating which ones are less or more likely to be true according to the basic rules of pseudology, AKA advertising techniques.

Satan's devotion to the spread of pseudology is clearly not factitious, for it is ever his praxis to ramify untruth throughout the world.

(by Bud Myte)


"I am an inveterate liar, a life-long pseudologist, I work constantly on spreading artful falsehoods and factitious untruths," declared a political candidate to his constituents in a bid to gain their vote, "whereas my opponent, a ridiculously honest man, a pitiful God-fearing upstanding citizen, is grossly unqualified for this Congressional seat since he has never told a single lie in his entire life, now I know that he has promised, contrary to his usual praxis, to become a better liar if elected but can you really trust that promise, that desperate eleventh hour conversion, and, more importantly, can you imagine the ramifications for our country if we started voting honest people in office?" (by Sami)


After acing the semi-annual praxis tests and acquiring the numero uno position in the  nationally administered uniform achievement test  "senta shiken" -Japan's toughest university entrance exam, Riyozaki silenced all those who mocked his claim of conquering The Senta Shiken as being factitous and was welcomed into the Hokkaido university (one among the National Seven Universities) with complete scholarship where he studied human psychology which had fast ramified into several branches including behavioral, clinical, cognitive and pseudology among others.
