Gödel's Incompleteness Theorem or A dream about The Lady and The Unicorn The sad fact is we are running out of blue. So we'll use red instead and a thousand flowers to bedeck the gaudy sky. The trees are striking, but draw your attention here to the cool smooth spiral of horn, mouthwatering tang of a tourtelete, heady fragrance of daisies, the plaintive toot of a portatif, your inverted gaze returned in a mirror. Like monkeys we are, in all but this, my sole desire: to know the unprovable. In truth, our systems cannot see themselves.
