>mfw Gödel’s incompleteness theorems are connected to unsolvable calculations in quantum physics.
That doesn't necessarily mean we can do it but yea he did show it works on paper at least.
We may discover things in the future that rule it out that's how Einstein felt, he said Gödel had discovered a nice mathematical oddity but he was confident future discoveries would eliminate it.
So he didn't take it as "OMG time travel!" he saw it as "This probably means the theory is incomplete".
Not sure how Kurt felt, if this was late in his life he was probably too busy worrying about poisoned food and assassins conspiring against him.
>"This probably means the theory is incomplete".
I agree. Einstein was stumped because rarely anyone could give a constructive criticism of his work. Most likely the Yang-Mills problem will answer this. Einstein himself couldn't give a rebuttal to Godel argument. Also was he chased by assassin toward the end of his life?
He went crazy near the end of his life. His wife got sick and could no longer cook for him so he refused to eat.
On and off through his life he suffered with paranoia and he had episodes where he believed his food was poisoned. He always trusted her food but when she couldn't cook for him anymore his paranoia came back and he stopped eating.
His official cause of death was "malnutrition caused by personality defect" or something like that.
i like incompleteness theorems,
i don't give a shit about quantum theory,
but knowing that those beautiful incompleteness results are connected to the physical world is very satisfying.
Well we need something new because everyone is fucking stuck. Current tools of modeling have reached their limit. Godel incompleteness theorems formalizes what everyone knew for centuries. Sometime we won't know.
