Meaning of BANACH-TARSKI PARADOX

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

It is possible to cut a solid ball into finitely many pieces (actually about half a dozen), and then put the pieces together again to get two solid balls, each the same size as the original.

This paradox is a consequence of the axiom of choice.
