You are right. I always lie.

Now you have created a neat little paradox, and you did it all by yourself! Congratulations! Here is your "I defeated myself with logic" cookie of the week!

No, because it's secretly a BEETLE.

There's this really handy "other thing" I'm going to write as a footnote to my abstract that I can probably explore these issues in. I think I'll call it my "dissertation."

It did seem a little crunchy.

I really haven't. If you've ever told the truth once then saying "I always lie" is a lie, and I never claimed you were incapable of telling the truth anyway. You can, after all, deceive people with honesty just as well. There's no paradox here.

But can you deceive someone without talking whatsoever?

Yes! If someone says "ah, you must be the new deputy chief inspector, come right in" and you were actually just coming to see whether the people in the meeting wanted tea, then you would be deceiving them if you chose to come right in and join the meeting rather than contradicting them.

Good example. The one that came to mind for me is similar, but you're actively deceiving instead of passively. Suppose you're a soldier on the battlefield, and you see a buddy of yours coming toward you. Suddenly, you look past him, a shocked expression appears on your face, and you fling yourself to the ground, as if something is about to explode just behind your buddy. if she/he then throws him/herself to the ground as well, you have successfully deceived your buddy without saying a word.
