Goedel, Escher, Bach - Lecture 6

In the first six minutes or so Curry gives a fairly good summary of Goedel's Theorem. Unfortunately this is the summary of the previous lecture which was not recorded. It seems nothing is free, not even free video lectures because it turns out the best ( not implying the rest is good ) is missing.

After rushing through formal stuff he wastes five minutes about a three-layer stupid joke about a book he had not read.

I quick-scanned through the rest of the video. Not worth watching, really. Too bad. I looked forward to this.

The take home message of the course. All provable things are true but not necessarily al true things are provable.
Justin Curry

Now that I am mostly through all M381 stuff I am glad it included mathematical logic. I would -not- have done it as a stand-alone course. Logic is hard in the beginning, like most new subjects. It needs time to work on you. I will get back to this in the next M381 post.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
