Making no assumptions about his starting or stopping or about his pace during the trips, can you prove that there is a place on the path which he occupies at precisely the same time of day on the two separate journeys.

The solution to this is a very famous example of conceptual blending...if that helps.
I guess the top doesn't count? Are there breadcrumbs involved in this?
