Hi Gary, great story about the brilliant Russell. :-D Analogous to all the nonsensical theorems that involve division by zero.

Sad that his goal of a definitive authoritative tome on mathematics, Principia Mathematica, was demolished by Godel's one-page impossibility theorem.

Hi again Sri, yes, Sad for Russell, but he was still brilliant! I think you might enjoy this anecdote I posted some time ago involving Godel and Einstein.
