Hi Stephen P. King
Ah so. I can point leibniz's critics to Godel.
And to the contingency of the world. What did you expect ?
A rose garden ?
Leibniz sort of sensed Godel's theorem by his recognition that while
things must be perfect in Heaven,
down here things were contingent, iffy, troublesome, imperfectly
fitting and imperfect in the small,
but optimal in the large.
There were reaslons behind each event, but they needn't entirely jibe with
one another. And even the reasons were mutually contingent. What a mess.
I agree with your remarks here 100%!
