The Riddle of The Sphinx was said to be asked of every traveler The Sphinx encountered.
“What goes on four feet in the morning, two feet at noon, and three feet in the evening?” The Sphinx asked Oedipus.
Oedipus answered: “Man: as an infant, he crawls on all fours; as an adult, he walks on two legs; and in old age, he uses a walking stick.” Oedipus was the first to answer the riddle correctly and, having heard Oedipus’ answer, the Sphinx was shocked and inexplicably killed herself. Oedipus went on to succeed in his conquest.
The Riddle of The Sphinx is interesting, and yet there is something left incomplete. The answer to the riddle does not provide the same provoking pondering that so many other riddles provide. It is literally a dead end. The answer feels incomplete. The Riddle of The Sphinx leaves one perplexed rather than ignited by inquisitiveness. It reveals no mystery and yet is among the greatest of mysteries. It provides no paradigm thinking other riddles might provide, however slight the paradigm may be. It is as if The Riddle of The Sphinx hints at another riddle, as if there the answer quietly points to an unsaid follow up riddle and answer behind The Riddle of The Sphinx.
