Incompleteness and Uncertainty

This subject is as profound as it is deep. Godel and Heisenberg sure opened up a can of tomatoes and threw them at the political, religious and commercial leaders that form the WORLD. speak to this subject if thou wills it.

"Well, one day [Wheeler recounts] I was at the Institute of Advanced Study, and I went to Gödel's office, and there was Gödel. It was winter and Gödel had an electric heater and had his legs wrapped in a blanket. I said, 'Professor Gödel, what connection do you see between your incompleteness theorem and Heisenberg's uncertainty principle?' And Gödel got angry and threw me out of his office."
