What about the enormous legion of people like me reading this list
who are neither mathematicians OR physicists but who also have a
healthy interest in the fundamental questions?
Isn't the "Everything List" for *every* body?
Any hope of someone bringing out a lexicon of terms - I mean a
glossary of acronyms at least? - you guys use acronyms constantly but
never say what they stand for....it's quite irritating. There is a
great need for a glossary of stuff - let me just say that.
The fame of this list is not to be underestimated but do occasionally
consider those lesser mortals who seek a simplified verbal
explanation of most things.
Gödel's Incompleteness Theorem CAN be understood without reference to
the numbers. Something tells me Bruno's comp theory can as well. He
does remarkably well with his English but his acronyms make me cringe

mathematical logic for the people who are interested in the
