In 1931, the younger Kurt Gödel released his First Incompleteness Theorem, which tells us that, for any sufficiently wealthy idea of mathematics, there are a few arithmetical truths the speculation can't end up. This awesome result's one of the such a lot fascinating (and so much misunderstood) in common sense. Gödel additionally defined an both major moment Incompleteness Theorem.

Knowledge of laws confers power over and lifts one out of the natural order, frees one from domination by natural forces, enabling the manipulation of these forces to human ends. The optimistic vision of technology rests on this same faith. The pessimistic vision echoes humanist themes critical of and sceptical about the possible achievements of science, critical of the conception of reason as that which makes us human. The image of Faustus selling his soul (his humanity) to gain the knowledge which yields power captures this—to be governed by pure reason is to cease to be human.
These are separate considerations, but both of them are important, and in particular cases, one or other of them may demand preference, according to the circumstances. Living in a technological culture 36 For instance, if a mine is to be drained of water, and if, by becoming deeper and more extensive, its engine is scarcely equal to the task, the principal object will be to augment the power of the engine by every possible means, without regard to the consumption of fuel. This is a very common case in coal mines, where fuel can be had free of expense.
It was therefore necessary for engineers to develop ways of rating their engines with respect to these two factors: The mechanical effect of the steam engine may be considered either in respect to the mechanical power exerted by a given machine, in a given time, or in respect to the expenditure of fuel, by which a given mechanical effect is produced. These are separate considerations, but both of them are important, and in particular cases, one or other of them may demand preference, according to the circumstances.
