    Oh my god! Won’t someone think of the children!?

    Intellectual … that’s what we are!
    Philosophical … here at the bar!
    That anthropic mechanism’s swell!
    Can’t mix incompleteness of Godel!
    Artie says not …
    Lee takes a shot!

    Oh, so tedious … Tip finds their talk!
    He will catch the bus, or maybe walk …
    Tip will mosey back to his hotel,
    Seems his mojo cannot break the spell
    Of these highly intellectual
    Two!

    I doubt that Tip will get slippery tonight.

    Ok, if Artie is all clever-clever as Sweetheart fears, and leaving him alone with “their civilian contact” is a bad thing, what do you suppose he will do to her when Tip steps out of the bar?

    Who’s to say, there is that orange headed lady with Sweetheart and Unity.

    Artie would mojo Tip, not Virginia. Maybe just poison her mind with wrong ideas that appeal to her. Although, he’s not unkind…

    Seems to me sex is the least thing on their minds. Tip is just drowning in their intellectuality. Time to swim for home.

    Are they speaking of the first or second incompleteness theorem?

    odel’s proof. The translation
    happens on three levels:
    from German to English
    from G
    
    odel’s notation to more common mathematical symbols
    from paper to hyper-text

    Hofstadter, Gödel, Escher, Bach

    All consistent axiomatic formulations of number theory include undecidable propositions …

    Gödel showed that provability is a weaker notion than truth, no matter what axiom system is involved …

    How can you figure out if you are sane? … Once you begin to question your own sanity, you get trapped in an ever-tighter vortex of self-fulfilling prophecies, though the process is by no means inevitable. Everyone knows that the insane interpret the world via their own peculiarly consistent logic; how can you tell if your own logic is "peculiar’ or not, given that you have only your own logic to judge itself? I don’t see any answer. I am reminded of Gödel’s second theorem, which implies that the only versions of formal number theory which assert their own consistency are inconsistent.

    @Eddurd

    Thanks for posting here!
    Too bad somebody misspelled “theorem.” Plus, there are two of ’em.
