This talk aims to shed some light on how Scala's type-level programming is essentially logic programming, and give reasoning for code, comprising 8+ implicit parameters with funny names (FnHipsterAux).

Scala is known to be a nice blend of object-oriented and functional paradigms. A lesser known fact is that it's also a logic programming type system! After all, it's not the syntax, but rather the semantics we're after right? Functional in the small, OO in the large, logic in the type system!
