Also known as the incompleteness Theorem, actually two theorems
proposed by Austrian-American logician Kurt Gödel. Gödels
First Theorem states that any consistent mathematical theory that
includes counting numbers is incomplete. His Second Theorem states
that such theory cannot prove its own consistency.
To pass directly from the solid to the vapor state. Usually by action
of heat, to cause to undergo this process sometimes in both directions.
Daniel Bell was an American sociologist. According to Bells
theory posed during the 70s, the vital commodity of the post
industrial order is information. The most important economic activities
are the acquisition of data, its processing (with the aid of computers)
and its interpretation by professional mediatorsaccountants,
journalists, specialist advisors. In practical terms, this means
business should give higher priority to research and development.
English mathematician and cryptographer, Turing invented the Turing
machine. The Turing machine was effectively the first computeran
abstractpaper exercise. A cryptographer who decoded codes
and ciphers during the Second World War, he broke the famous German
Enigma code and was a key player in the design and creation of Colossusthe
worlds earliest working programmable electronic computers.
Kinetic: Of or from motion; energetic, dynamic.
A formula for solving a problem.
The branch of philosophy dealing with the study of the nature of
knowledge, its origin, foundation, limits and validity.
Willhelm von Leibniz
Leibniz (1646-1716) was a German philosopher, mathematician and
statesman, regarded as one of the supreme intellects of the 17th
century. In 1675, Leibniz discovered the mathematical principles
of calculus, independently from the earlier
discoveries of English scientist Sir Isaac Newton. Leibniz also
invented a calculating machine and is considered a pioneer in the
development of mathematical logic. In Leibnizs philosophy,
the universe is composed of countless conscious centers of
spiritual force or energy known as monads.
psychology: The theory of unitary mental organization based on the
observation that perception is structural and cannot be resolved
as a mere agglomeration of minute definable responses to local stimuli.
Our apprehension of visual shapes, for instances, or of melodies
in music, is a total and integrated response which merely analytical
procedures are inadequate to describe. (Founded in 1910 by 3 German
psychologists, Max Wertheimer, Kurt Koffka and Wolfgang Köhler.)
Mauritis Cornelius Escher (1898-1972) was a Dutch artist whose lithographs
woodcuts depict imaginary metamorphoses, geometric distortions,
and architectural impossibilities.
The theory that the evolution of
a species is influenced most strongly by internal factors and is
not subject to the external forces
of natural selection. 2. The theory that all cultures pass through
sequential periods in the same order. (Note: Teilhard)
Intuition: The act or faculty of knowing or sensing without the
use of rational processes.
A newly coined word or a new meaning for an old word. The use of
new words or of new meanings for old words.
William Bateson (1861-1926) was a British biologist, who founded
and named the field of genetics. A staunch believer in evolution,
he observed that some of an organisms distinct fears can suddenly
appear or disappear from one generation to the next. Bateson set
the stage for the rapid progress of genetics in the 20th century.
Of, relating to, or affecting the body, especially as distinguished
from a body part, the mind, or the environment, corporeal or physical.
The act or faculty of knowing.
