"Sandy Island"

If it exists, how come it doesn't exist?

Or maybe the question should be turned around: If it doesn't exist, how come it exists?

Either way, scientists are puzzled by a South Pacific island that shows up on all sorts of sophisticated maps and yet -- when sought out by ship -- proved not to be there.

It's the kind of conundrum any serious meditation student might find consoling.
