An encyclopedia of 429 volumes revered for some 10,000 years as the ultimate authority of the Empire is found, upon closer inspection, to have been written by an idiot. The Scholar-saint who first unearthed the problem (who claimed the ability to distinguish individual drops of water) naturally expected to receive praise from the highest quarters.  But instead his results were suppressed by the powers that be and for thanks he was exiled forevermore from his homeland.

The official reasoning: Nothing is wrong in fish thinking of themselves as birds.’
