*Kurt Godel (1906-1978) *

*Kurt Godel was a mathematician and logician. He developed
Godel’s Incompleteness Theorem, which demonstrates that all complex logical
systems are incomplete and that each of these systems contains, at any given
time, more true statements than it can prove using its own defining set of
rules. This disproved a belief at the time that all branches of mathematics
could be integrated and means that humans can recognize the true meaning of
some sentences but the truth of them cannot be derived by any logical system.
