I started an experiment called the Journal of Ideas.  This week I scanned the contents into PDFs and added it.  I will also be using the omega23 website to archive various speculative pieces on knowledge exploration and more.

Unprovability, nonvalidity, infallability

Am reading Zermelo’s 1908 paper “A new proof of the possibility of a well ordering“.  You know the one I mean … and so there, in black on white (or similar shades) he writes:

Now even in mathematics unprovability, as is well known, is in no way equivalent to nonvalidity, since, after all not everything can be proved.

he also writes:

there are no infallible authorities in mathematics

Ok, if that’s not enough, what is?

Politicians, take note …

Cheers  … The best is yet to come …
